My prints of animals, birds, gardens and landscapes are hand printed using traditional techniques, inspired by Japanese and Chinese printmakers and the English tradition of the illustrative print. I make a limited number of each print (10 to 50) and because of subtle variations in the process each print is unique.
I studied design and illustration at Brighton College of Art and Design and started my career in publishing as a designer and art buyer for a major UK publisher. I have been working as a freelance illustrator and designer since 1991; supplying clear, informative, digital artwork for major publishing projects.
I now combine traditional printmaking techniques with digital artwork to create artwork for designers and publishers of printed and digital media, packaging, brand identities, etc. Since April 2015 I have been a regular contributor to Gardens Illustrated Magazine, illustrating Frank Ronan's monthly column with a linocut. In June 2015 I redesigned the Telegraph Newspaper crest for the 160th anniversary new-look of the daily newspaper.
Please get in touch if you wish to discuss a project.
