As a freelance Illustrator & Designer with 19 years' experience, I have enjoyed a diverse range of projects with publishers and design companies across Britain and Europe. My work has been extensively published (see my CV).

I have worked both in-house and freelance for Gisela Graham Ltd and Think Pink, (now Floss & Rock), where my designs have been sold nationwide to leading retailers including Harrods, John Lewis, Marks & Spencer and Mothercare, as well as smaller independent boutiques.

My style is fresh and colourful and lends itself well to both book illustration and commercial projects, with character designs that can be adapted for gift products, stationery, greeting cards, gift wrap, children's toys and textiles.

Regular commissions have included designing animal doorstops for Marks & Spencer's Home Department and Children's Melamine Sets for Martin Gulliver Designs (retailing across Europe & the UK, and in John Lewis).

The diversity of projects has taught me flexibility and versatility in adapting my designs to satisfy clients' needs. I see this as a central feature of my working relationships. I am now based in the city of Bath, where I work from home.
