Overview

I am a freelance artist, designer and illustrator whose work is inspired by my background in tattooing and studies in Fine Art. I can work in two styles; traditional tattoo inspired images, and my signature detailed, mehndi influenced linear pattern technique, which can transform any subject from type to animals to portraits and beyond.

I have worked with publishers including Penguin books, Puffin books, and Ryland, Peters and Smalls, alongside providing special and limited edition designs and collborations with a diverse range of brands including Levi's, Diesel, Snog, Bulleit, and Bill Amberg, and have provided illustrations for numerous independent zines and childrens books.

Between commissions I work on Fine Art projects and regularly exhibit internationally.
