I am an artist and illustrator living in the South of England near Brighton, Sussex. I developed a love of drawing and reading very young, so it’s probably no surprise that I think of my art as expressions of words, stories and dialogues. For me, a piece of art is not fully alive until it becomes part of some wider story, or someone viewing it responds to it by having their imagination wake up and encourage them to participate in a dialogue with it.

My early paintings were mostly done in acrylic or gouache, and then I moved onto using oils. I spent several years painting with traditional media and doing a variety of work on commission. More recent experimentation in Adobe Photoshop led me to creating art digitally, and I now find myself creating most of my artwork this way. Sometimes I mix traditional media and techniques with my digital work.
