I have developed several styles of illustration over the years, all of them in response to specific requirements needed at the time.

In doing so, I have amassed a wide variety of knowledge of materials and techniques, from paints to pixels.

I really enjoy the challenge of discovering new ways of working, from basic pencil to advanced Mac programmes, creating anything from Monet’s to Mister Men, Cave art to Emoji. Basically, everything is in the idea, and the rest is just colouring-in, but above all, It’s not art, it’s just solving problems.

The ‘idea’ is what makes illustration ‘buzz’ for me. That, and getting paid for it.
