I’m a passionate creative soul who has always been happiest when either designing, drawing, printmaking or taking photographs.
I’m a graphic designer with over 20 years experience in creating commercial designs, artwork and visual communication.
My creative answers to commercial and not-for-profit challenges cover: design for licensed stationery merchandise, agency work across multiple clients, packaging and design for print, and product releases and collateral for healthcare and rare disease causes.
From a skill set point of view I’d describe myself as a “Jack of all trades, and master of some!”.
You’re welcome to contact me if you’d like to find out how I can help you with your design and creative needs.

After the success of Winston, I was asked if I’d like to design the Christmas card for Vasculitis UK. Almost straight away I knew what design I’d like to do, but getting the right source material proved to be a little more tricky. I tried all the normal places and that included my daughter’s extensive collection of animal books… but to no avail.
Taking inspiration from 1960s graphics, horse racing ephemera (and of course, the National Trust branding) I then designed the graphics that went on the side and the back of the van, so that visitors know what the van is, (and therefore why it is parked in the grounds)… and most importantly when it will be open for business.
My ‘Winston’ illustration (see the previous post) has now raised over £600 for the charity, Vasculitis UK being sold on over six hundred greeting cards. It still amazes me that a piece of work that I created on a difficult day (with my Behçet’s disease) back in February to art therapy (and literally draw it out of) myself has been so popular.
May is #VasculitisAwarenessMonth. What is Vasculitis? Vasculitis is a collection of 18 diseases that all have one thing in common – inflammation of the blood vessels. The inflammation happens because the immune system is attacking itself.
