My love of illustrating started at school and has continued all through a varied creative career within the greeting card industry as a Creative Head and designer/illustrator. Situated in the hill top village of Baildon, working from my attic studio overlooking Baildon Moor, West Yorkshire I get wonderful views of nature and life passing by. I have a varied style and ability and enjoy working in all mediums, by hand and digitally. As well as illustrating all things nature I also work on pet portrait commissions. Married to my soul mate Michelle, we share our house with our rescue cat Ozzy. Being close to the Dales there’s little excuse not to go out on my bikes to recharge my batteries, as a keen photographer I’m always aware of my surroundings and like to capture the world around us. Whilst creating I have radio 4 in the background, when I need to crank it up a bit heavier, I turn to Ramstein, Muse, 90’s Indie and Ministry of Sound We are spoilt for choice around here with places of interest but my favourite places are Cornwall’s South East coast, the North York Moors and Dumfries and Galloway, locally Bolton Abbey Estate and anywhere with a tea room!
