ILLUSTRATION
& SURFACE PATTERN DESIGN


I illustrate music and stories for (but not limited to) the publishing and design industries using a combination of photoshop, hand drawn elements and hand painted textures. I focus mainly on portraits, nature and wildlife heavily decorated with pattern and often with a surreal/ethereal quality.

I grew up in rural Perthshire; when I wasn't day dreaming through rainy windows, I'd be climbing trees, building gang huts, or exploring abandoned crofts. This background threads its way through my practice today, incorporating folklore, social history and the transient tapestry of ever-changing light, seasons, texture and colour that surrounds us.
