Currently working as an artist and illustrator from my garden studio in Wivenhoe, Essex, I am also a founder member of Wivenhoe Printworks where I make my own prints and run workshops and facilitate open access sessions for the public.
In 2016 I graduated with distinction from the Children’s Book Illustration MA at the Cambridge School of Art, Anglia Ruskin University. I trained as a teacher in 2004-2003 and I graduated with first class hons in Fine Art from Exeter College of Art in 1993.
In the 1990’s I lived in Bristol and worked as a model maker for Limbs & Things Ltd, Bumper Films & Aardman Animations Ltd. I think my love of making things in 3D stems from this time. I have also always maintained a drawing practice and alongside teaching various drawing classes I also draw regularly in public spaces and from Google Maps.
