I am an illustrator living in Herefordshire. I enjoy exploring ideas of silliness, magic, joy, shadow, folk, history, nature and mystery. I also teach illustration as a lecturer on the BA Illustration courses at Hereford College of Arts and at The University of Gloucestershire.

As a kid I lived on a remote island in the Seychelles, where my parents worked as conservationists. I got to swim with turtles and used to pretend I was Peter Pan. I used to like to spend my days swimming and the evening drawing all the fish I saw, and all the dinosaurs I didn’t see.
