I'm a professionally trained artist, freelance illustrator and also work as an illustrator for HarperCollins. I have a BA (Hons) Degree in Fine Art and was awarded an MA place at the prestigious Slade School of Fine Art in London, which I had to give up due to life restraints at the time but which I will take up one day! I also did a National Diploma in Art & Design in addition to my a BA (Hons) in Fine Art.
I have extraordinarily refined visual acuity skills and am a highly skilled drawer, with excellent draftsmanship abilities.
I'm an illustrator, painter, traditional artist and writer hailing from the west country.
I have a passion for nature, landscapes and SFF.
So far I have illustrated 11 books for various authors and publishing houses and have recently been taken on as a HarperCollins illustrator, with two hand drawn fantasy maps due to be published by them in June 2017 for grimdark debuts, 'The Court of Broken Knives' by Anna Smith-Spark & 'Godblind' by Anna Stephens.
