‘I have been under the banner of an agent in the 90’s and produced work for a wide international client base.I have been published within editorial and book publications along with images for advertising. I have been described as a generalist, I can produce work utilising most media and styles. I commenced the MA with a view to using it as a platform to reinvent myself as an illustrator. I would describe my current style as graphic and editorial. I am constantly updating my style, in my search for a naive, graphic, aesthetic.’

‘My current work is predominantly satirical in nature. I gain my inspiration from the absurdity as I see it, of many aspects of human nature. My main influences at the present time, are fine artist Rose wylie and illustrators, Raymond pettibon USA, and Paul Davis, UK. My current projects include a satirical book concerning relationships and how couples relate to each other. I am also interested in childrens book publications and I am collaborating with a writer on a self initiated story for an e book for children, encompassing thirty two of my illustrations.’
