Service Description

I am currently working as a freelance writer and graphic artist.

I specialise in sports writing and am currently working on blog sites for fishing, horse racing, rugby and football (soccer). I have a good all-round sports knowledge of events in Britain and Internationally. I also have experience of article writing on various subjects and am happy to research or re-write your copy to provide excellent content.

Since becoming self-employed I have worked on the creation of two new monthly titles (The Freshwater Informer and Now You Know magazine) before taking on the graphic design and layout of The Sea Angling News.

I have also created a specialist horse racing website racingbookshop.com and have designed logos including the above titles and RacescotUK.

I have a Fine Art background and work as an equestrian artist specialising in horse racing with commissions from Canada, Australia, France and Ireland as well as here in the UK. I can create original detailed artwork in pencil, charcoal, water colour or acrylic and have exhibited in England and Scotland.
