About

A view of London from my house.
My dog, Len, checking Facebook.
I was born in England, spent my toddler years in Singapore and emigrated with my family to Australia when I was seven. I came back to England in my late twenties and now live in south London with my partner, our daughter and our dog. Scroll down to the end of this post see an hourly comic about a day in my life.

I started my creative career as a graphic designer working (at different times) on magazines and in various design and animation studios. I became self employed so as to focus on my illustration work.

My illustrations have appeared in magazines, leaflets, brochures, booklets, posters, children's educational books and much more. 

Clients have included publishers (Folens, Scholastic, Heinemann, Stanley Thornes and Ashgate), newspapers (The Independent and Times Education Supplement), magazines (Nursery World and Learning Support), Fortnum & Mason, Tumble Tots, Councils (Cambridge and Brent), the Catholic Church, Early Learning Centre, the Royal College of Anaesthetists and others.

Over the years I have developed a few different illustration styles and still like to experiment, go to my illustration styles page to find out more.

I also work on comics and I am just starting work on a non-fiction graphic novel about residents in Tottenham whose homes are threatened by stadium-led regeneration (funded by Birkbeck College, University of London). When I am not doing any of that I like to fix old things, make new things, read, sew and ramble around London.

Over on Illustrating for Children I blog about my illustrations for children and about children's illustration generally. I blog about my love of comics of all kinds and graphic novels from the perspective of a fan on Sequential Art.

I am available for commissions and I run comic making workshops for all ages please send me a message using the contact form on this blog or use the links on my contact me page to find out more. I am a member of the Association of illustrators.
