‘I’d consider myself a classic illustrator in the way that everything is hand drawn and I try to involve technology as little as possible in the creation of the images. Unfortunately for me I tend to favour a 0.05mm drawing pen and love a dot so my images tend to be very time consuming but then again that’s part of what I love most about drawing them and they always feel like a real achievement. It’s always a love/hate relationship I develop with my drawings because of what they put me through.

Most of my drawings tend to have a very natural and organic feel, I like to think I try and highlight and maybe distort the best of what the natural world has to offer resulting in dreamlike and surreal landscapes. ‘
