Brief Summary

Since graduating from Edinburgh College of Art in 1993, I've worked as both illustrator and art director. In partnership with other creatives I seek to inform, entertain and challenge using words and pictures - producing lively colourful children's books, illustrating newspapers and magazines, and helping to build global brands such as Virgin, Orange and Benetton. Whatever the client or medium, my aim is to grab attention and spark the imagination!

My work has featured in American Illustration, Graphik, Creativematch, Design Week, Advanced Photoshop and the AOI Images. I have been shortlisted twice for the prestigious V&A Illustration Awards. I draw using a touch sensitive display - the Wacom Cintiq - then colour and finish my illustrations in Adobe Photoshop. I also use Adobe Illustrator to create sequences for animation. I live and work from a farmhouse in the Buchan plains north of Aberdeen (Scotland).
