Growing up in the North West of England, I started drawing at an early age. If I didn't have a pencil and paper to hand I would always be found drawing on the street flags outside my childhood home. Drawing pictures in chalk and sometimes getting a small audience of a couple of passers by.
I went on to study art and design which then led on to a position in a greeting card studio - Hambledon Studios, a small division of Hallmark.
Now a professional illustrator, I provide a diverse style to accommodate a wide variety of clientele where my artwork can range from fine art, illustration for greeting cards right through to avatars for company branding.
With my style ever changing I find the best thing is for me to get out only bike around the "just shy of a mountain" Pendle Hill where I can not only get inspiration but to clear my head for new projects ahead!
