illustration // wildlife & nature // personalised pet portraiture // photography

Welcome and thank you for taking the time to visit my website.

 

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 / Art Director / Designer / Iillustrator.

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 animal and pet portrait commissions.

Married to my soul mate Michelle, we share our home with rescue cat Ozzy. Being close to the Dales there’s little excuse not to go out on my bike to recharge my batteries, as a keen photographer I’m always aware of my surroundings and like to capture the world around us. 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!
