I am a Nottingham-based artist and illustrator originally from Rochdale. Inspired by the ordinary things in life, my work is quirky and contemporary with a refreshing take on modern life. Liberally dosed with wordplay, humour and imagination, my work combines words with pictures. It's equally important for me to come up with exactly the right words for a picture as it is to get the image right.

Biography

I am a Nottingham-based artist and illustrator originally from Rochdale. Inspired by the ordinary things in life, my work is quirky and contemporary with a refreshing take on modern life. Liberally dosed with wordplay, humour and imagination, my work combines words with pictures. It's equally important for me to come up with exactly the right words for a picture as it is to get the image right. Increasingly I'm using manipulated photographs in my work, creating digital collages. I use a graphics tablet to create my images which are then realised as prints and greeting cards. My work has a broad appeal across the age spectrum and is simultaneously accessible and slightly unconventional.
