As well as illustrating for print publications, I also create art for greetings cards, gift wrap, wall art, stationery, gifts and home decor. I have a portfolio of hundreds of illustrations, hand lettering in a variety of styles, placements and repeat patterns available to license or buy. Below is just a small selection (click on the images to enlarge). If you'd like to see a gallery of designs that might fit your project, please do contact me with some info about what you need and I'll get right back to you. I also work on commission.

I have a fantastic range of letterpress and foil stamped cards and notebooks developed in partnership with US letterpress specialists Big Wheel Press. Retailers interested in stocking the range should contact Big Wheel for more information.


Book & Editorial Illustration

In 2015 I illustrated a weekly column for The Guardian that ran for eight months. In 2016 I illustrated The Science of Everyday Life by Marty Jopson, published by Michael O'Mara Books. I was delighted to work with Marty and the MOM Books team on the follow up, The Science of Food, due out later in 2017. I have also work with Quarto Publishing and Workman. I'm currently developing illustrations for children's books. If you would like to commission me to illustrate for your publication, please do get in touch.
