Thank you for visiting.
I combine classic mark-making tools, pencil, watercolour, printing techniques, paper cutouts, sometimes mixed with digital techniques, to create my gritty illustrations. I like images that tell stories with drama, mystery and play. My characters can appear naïve, even humourous at times, but on closer look nuances, like expression, gesture, posture, clothing and props communicate deeper social narratives.
I have made things with my hands since I was a kid, and as well as illustration, I have worked on a number of photography and video projects. My work has been been part of many exhibtions in Europe and North America and my illustrations and photographs are part of gallery and private collections in Canada, the USA, and the UK. My short film, 'Idol Mind', was nominated for 'Best British Short' and won the 'Audience Award' at the East London Film Festival in 2010.
I am currently working on the illustrated history of a street in Whitechapel called Cudworth Street, first named in 1856. It's a fascinating story of skilled labour and govenrment neglect and has a lot of parrallels with what's happening to artisans and makers today.
My freelance portfolio is diverse, ranging from, editorial images, illustration for children, and artwork for musicians. I love working with people on visually narrating their ideas.
Get in touch and let me make you an image!
