After gaining a BA (Hons) in Fine Art from WSCAD I went on to complete a MA in Animation at Bournemouth University.
As a creative I was fortunate to work for many years in the animation industry at studios such as Aardman Animations, 4:2:2 and Picasso Pictures.
I currently spend most of my time working on writing & illustration projects and running Retro Inc Books.
I am available for new and exciting illustration commissions.
I have a BBC Talent award for Animation, a Royal Television Society award, and have been in competition at Annecy, Edinburgh, Portland, London and numerous other international film festivals.
Recently my children’s book ‘Chester and the Eggie Boo‘ was runner up in Writing Magazines Self Published Book of the Year Award 2016.
One current project ‘Bob Soup‘ (currently a work in progress) received a commendation at The Winchester Writers Festival.
I live in the sunny South West of England with my musician wife, fantastic son, and naughty border terrier.
