My artwork is created with paints, pencils and a tiny bit of Photoshop - fundamentally I love to draw, from the bottle of linseed oil on my desk to my latest portrait commission. I have a 1st Class Degree in Graphic Design from Kingston University, UK and have worked as an illustrator for over 20 years. My paintings, drawings and portraits have been used on book covers, magazine spreads, newspapers, posters and ads for publishers, advertising and design agencies both in the UK and internationally.
I get very excited about painting people, and also enjoy drawing objects, landscapes or seascapes. My body of work represents my commercial illustration, private commissions and personal pieces.
Clients include The Financial Times, Rolling Stone, Time Out, FCB New Zealand, Smithsonian Magazine, OUP, Macmillan, Hasenfeld Zurich, Kiehls, BBC, Waitrose Magazine, Saatchi & Saatchi and Trailer Park Inc.
My work has appeared in a number of publications including - Illustration NOW! published by Taschen Books 2005, Illustration NOW! - Portraits published by Taschen Books 2010, 100 Illustrators published by Taschen Books 2013, Stellen Wert published by Stampfli Verlag 2015 and The Illustrator - 100 Best from Around the World published by Taschen Books 2019.
I live with my husband, three children and Twiggy the Irish Terrier in Surrey, UK.
