I am an artist currently based in the city of Nottingham, UK. I have a degree in Fine Art from the Cardiff School of Art. I work in pen and ink on paper creating detailed and dark drawings and paintings populated with monstrous and characterful beings and creatures. My work is often inspired by mythology, fairy tales, sleep/nightmares, hidden worlds and my ongoing fascination with the scale of all things, particularly the non human.

I also own and run my business, Teeth and Claws designing and producing my growing range of unique cards, gifts and home decor featuring my illustrations of dragons, dinosaurs, cats and gothic bats. All manufactured here in the UK.
Before this I spent many years working as an illustrator in the publishing industry, predominantly the older children’s book market. My published work includes illustrations for book covers, novelty popup books, picture books, decorative borders, illustrated maps, pen and ink illustrations, hand lettering and illustrations for magazines and digital media.
