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. Working on a fairytale compilation for a small UK publisher as well as ebooks and print works for self publishing authors.

Recently I have worked on a cover design and illustration for award winning author Lynne Reid Banks as well as part of a team redesigning Paddington Bear for the 2014 style catalogue coming out alongside the film.

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.
