I left the beloved Yorkshire town I grew up in and moved to the heart of England where I graduated with a degree in Fine Art from the University of Central England in 1997. After wandering for several years in the wilderness that is life after graduation I found my true calling as an illustrator and haven't looked back since.

I have worked for clients such as The New York Times, TOMS, Warburtons, 8th Continent, Hugo Boss, Anorak, The Guardian, Die Zeit, Timeout Magazine, Static Caravan.
