education, and am based in London. My particular interests are in Medieval
& "Dark Age" history and art; folklore & fairytales;
herbal lore; circus, theatre & puppetry; popular religion & superstition;
languages & lettering; books & storytelling; music; environmental,
political & social issues; travel & the outdoors.
I mostly use pencils or paint in oils, although I have also used various
printing techniques. I am particularly drawn to incorporating words and
lettering into the images.

with special needs, set painting, work in film and prop making, and in
museum education as well as a variety of private commissions and personal
For the future I plan to continue seeking work in the world of book illustration
