ABOUT 

  • Bachelor of Illustration, Edinburgh College of Art, Scotland
  • Bachelor of Visual Arts and Design, Telemark University College, Norway

The majority of my work is illustrations for children or young teenagers, and is often a mixture of pencil, pen and watercolours. I enjoy creating humorous characters and writing stories for children, but I also enjoy illustrating other people’s wonderful stories and poetry or creating exiting textural paintings. You can contact me via my website or at [email protected]. I look forward to hearing from You.
