Illustration / Caricature / Cartoon style

Freelance illustrator with over 10 years experience.
Drawings are scanned and rendered digitally in Photoshop.

The majority of my illustration work is editorial but I have also worked in the fields of greetings cards, wedding invitations and retirement/leaving cards (caricature), board games, flick book animation, student educational books, promotional advertising, web illustration, cartoon/comic strips.


I had studio space in Arena for 10 years from 1997 when it was situated at Duke Street, became a director from 2005-2007 and now work from home. I am currently plotting various paintings and drawings and have an exhibition at the Unity theatre during November 2009
