Biography

I have been working as a freelance illustrator since 1998, in all areas but mainly in the field of children’s publishing. I have illustrated many educational, pre-school, novelty and picture books including the popular ‘Skullabones Island’ series published by Ladybird. Other published titles include: ‘Charlie & the Cheesemonster’ by Paper Craft, ‘If I Were an Astronaut’ and 'If I Were a Major Baseball League Player’ by Picture Window books, ‘Just Like My Mommy’ & ‘Just Like My Daddy’ by Caterpillar books, 'Three Little Pigs’ by Miles Kelly & 'Caterpillar’s Colours’ by Simon & Schuster amongst others. I work using a mixture of hand drawn line, painted textures and patterns, and Photoshop. I am a member of the AOI (Association of Illustrators) and am currently represented by The Bright Group.
