I was born in Newcastle Upon Tyne and have a passion with drawing  life and my surroundings. I combine traditional drawing materials such as fountain pen and watercolour with Photoshop in order to create my illustrations. I use my sketchbooks on a daily basis to capture places, people and buildings. 
I gained a first in my Animation degree from the University of Glamorgan - Cardiff in 2014. Before spending a year studying Visual Development at the Academy of Art in San Francisco USA. In 2017 I completed my MA in Children’s Book Illustration from the Cambridge School of Art at Anglia Ruskin University. In that year my work was featured in the graduation show/exhibition in Central London. Since graduating I have been working as a freelance illustrator on various commissions, having market/art stalls in addition to my part time job as a barista in Costa Coffee.
