Since graduating with a 'First' in 'Graphic Design Illustration', I've worked as a freelance illustrator. I now live in the UK (Newbury, Berkshire) and work for a wide variety of clients across Europe and North America, often to very tight deadlines. I've been involved in several projects that have won awards, including the European Newspaper Award for 'Exemplary newspaper design in illustration'.
