I was always encouraged as a kid to draw by my dad. I studied Graphic Design at The University of Salford where I graduated in 2001 with a First Class honours degree, but gravitated to Illustration. Since then been working as a freelance illustrator. Alongside making images between 2005 and 2009 I put my knowledge gained to good use by teaching third year students on the BA hons Graphic Design Course at the University of Salford on Visual Practice and illustration modules. Plans for the future are to keep developing personal projects, and working with publishing, fashion, editorial and music clients and so forth. keep cycling and reading books.
