Experienced Illustrator based in Bristol UK. Cute & quirky images for Children's Books and more. Worked with top clients worldwide.

Overview

I'm an illustrator based in beautiful Bristol, UK. I use watercolour, pastels and coloured pencils mixed with digital techniques to create cute quirky illustrations for children's books, greetings cards, posters, book jackets, editorials and websites.

I love the work I do, and I'm lucky enough to have worked with some fantastic clients along the way, including Parragon Books, HarperCollins, Barrington Stoke, Thomas Nelson (US), Kalimat Books (UAE), American Greetings (US), Vistaprint, Design House Greetings (US), Henderson Greetings (AU), Elle Publishing, Don't Panic! and Juno Magazine.
