Drawing my way through life

I am a London-based illustration professional, delivering hand-drawn images and maps to help businesses connect with their customers. My client list in recent years includes TfL, Ogilvy and Mather, AEG Presents, Radio Times, Winsor and Newton, Crest Nicholson, The Goodwood Hotel and Thames & Hudson. As well as illustration projects, I have experience of producing visuals and sketches to tight deadlines for clients in the events sector. I am a member of the Association of Illustrators

My drawings are made on location or from photographs using traditional materials of pen and watercolour, then scanned and completed on Photoshop. Artwork is usually delivered digitally.

I am a keen sketchbook user and a member of the worldwide online ‘Urban Sketchers’ community, helping to organise events for the local London chapter. Last year I collaborated with Turismo de Portugal and Urban Sketchers, spending a week drawing in Lisbon and producing images to be used as part of an advertising campaign entitled ‘Sketch Tour Portugal”.
