I am a multi-media artist and bricolage enthusiast.
I combine classic mark-making tools - pencil, watercolour, printing techniques, paper cut-outs - sometimes mixed with digital, to create my gritty illustrations. I like images that tell stories with strong lighting and a sense of mystery. My characters can appear naïve, even humourous at times, but on closer look nuances, like expression, gesture, posture, style and props communicate deeper social narratives.
With trusty pencil in hand, I also work with photography, scenography and video. My work has been part of many exhibitions in Europe and North America and my illustrations and photographs are part of gallery and private collections in Canada, the USA, and the UK. My short film, 'Idol Mind', was nominated for 'Best British Short' and won the 'Audience Award' at the East London Film Festival in 2010.
Freelance commissions aside, I am currently working on the illustrated history of a street in Whitechapel called Cudworth Street, first named in 1856. It's a fascinating story of skilled labour and government neglect and has a lot of parallels with what's happening to artisans and makers today.
My freelance portfolio is diverse, ranging from editorial images, illustration for children, artwork for musicians to set design. I love working with people on visually communicating their ideas.
My website needs updating but you can still get in touch and let me make you an image!
