About Me

EDUCATION I trained in illustration at college in Cambridge, and then went on to further study printmaking at the Chelsea School of Art, before becoming a fellow with the Digswell Arts Trust in Hertfordshire. I then worked as a freelance artist for over 15 years, specialising in children’s books. I’ve been published all around the world, and produced artwork in all sorts of styles using a multitude of techniques.
