Service Description

I have worked in commercial illustration mainly for the giftware markets for clients like Shreds for Harrods and Selfridges textile design aimed at the London tourism customers. I also worked at Halcyon Days in Mayfair designing and illustrating fine enamel box and porcelain designs for exclusive clients and freelanced for them also.

My work has now naturally progressed into book illustration for children with illustration and cover design for award winning children's author Lynne Reid Banks
and as well as working as part of a team redesigning Paddington Bear for the 2014 official film style catalogue.

Recently I was asked to create fifty pages of illustration and writing for a prop sketch diary for a major broadcast TV drama out later this year.

Illustration and sketch visuals for marketing, advertising and web development companies and interior visuals for clients such as BAA are also something I do.

For illustration projects initial sketches are made from the clients brief and once agreed can be painted up in the above digitally or in traditional media. I require a deposit to start work with stage payments and a completion fee.

I can work quickly and accurately to the clients vision and am also happy to suggest and guide a client through ideas.
