I am a British designer and professional book illustrator and author, collaborating with publishers such as Templar Publishing, Little Tiger Press, Harper Collins USA, and Oxford University Press to name a few. I have previously worked in graphic design creating artwork for major retailers in the stationery industry such as Paperchase, John Lewis and W H Smith.

My diverse experience, spanning two decades designing for both stationery and book publishing, means I can offer insight into a wide range of design trends and current industry standards. I also really enjoy the challenge of combining graphic design and typography with illustration. I have an extensive knowledge of current design programmes and am able to utilise my knowledge to bring you fast seamless integration of digital artwork files into your work flow.

I am looking for the next great book so feel free to get in touch!
