Service Description

I offer a creative writing service with a particular interest in the fairytale and children's writing.

Research and non-fiction is an area I perform well in.

I am a realistic illustrator and artist that specializes in old-school techniques of pen and ink, watercolour and graphite pencil. I love drawing both people and animals.

I do some children illustration but it tends to be less cartoon-like and more realistic in style. Please look at my portfolio for examples.
