Service Description

I am a freelance illustrator working from my own studio in Sheffield. I have experience working as an in-house designer for one of the UK's largest department stores and have gained a 1st class BA in Graphic Design as well as MA Illustration. Since going freelance at the beginning of this year, I have been commissioned by a number of UK companies and produced two children's picture books, children's character merchandise and CD designs.

I believe friendly and concise communication with the client is vital to achieve the very best ideas and solutions for your brief. I work efficiently sharing sketching and rough stages with the client so we are always on track working towards a shared creative goal and producing the most effective and beautiful artwork possible.

I begin every illustration and design project with a series of sketches and ideas in pencil. After receiving feedback from the client, I will move on to produce a series of roughs and after these are approved I make any final changes and alterations as directed, and produce the final artwork. I provide the final work as high resolution image files in multiple formats depending on what the client requires.
