IllustratorI illustrated Pen Pals for b small and thoroughly enjoyed creating the right atmosphere of the life of two young teenagers in any cultural context. I trained as a graphic designer at Maidstone College of Art and subsequently worked as a printmaker and lecturer while developing my illustration career. I've been lucky enough to have had my work appear in advertising, magazines and books, on packaging and in many other applications. I also write, both in create and factual modes, with a keen interest in things practical. I live in Wivenhoe, Essex, and love boats, my garden, tap-dancing, flying kites, singing and keeping guinea pigs.
