I'm a Freelance Illustrator, Web Designer and Animator based in Northallerton, North Yorkshire
As well as working freelance, I work with Sense Creative Printers as a Web Designer and Flash Developer
After gaining a 1st class Honours Degree in Illustration and Design at Sunderland University in 2003, I exhibited my work at the ‘New Designers’ exhibition in London. Several publishers in the children’s books and greeting cards industries expressed interest in my work.
Since then I have been working as a freelance illustrator. Recently I have been commissioned to produce work for children’s books, graphics,
web design and animation. I have also been employed to teach animation and illustration with children at primary and secondary schools all over Yorkshire.
