Freelance designer, illustrator and art director based in cheshire, but occasionally I go and escape to Los Angeles from time to time...

After graduating in 2006 with a degree in Graphic Arts

with Illustration, from Liverpool John Moores university,

I promptly moved to London where I began working for Usborne Publishing. I spent five and a half years working

on tonnes of yummy (and some award winning) books for them, including titles from the Sticker Dolly Dressing and

That's Not my...series'.


During that time, and since becoming freelance in 2012,

I have had the pleasure of working on a pretty broad

range of books from baby and novelty, activity and sticker books, all the way up to older fiction and non-fiction titles.

I love doodling new characters and am partial to a bit of screen printing when I have some spare time.

Oh and biscuits, biscuits are good. With tea.
