About

I am an illustrator and graphic designer currently based in Glasgow. Over the years I have created illustrations, short-films, animations, comics, websites and designs for clients throughout the UK and Internationally. From time to time I participate in, exhibitions, book festivals and artist residencies. I have also won prizes for my work in the UK and Poland.

If you like any of the work and would like to commission me to do something for you feel free to get in touch.

 

Three facts about me


  1. I am a graduate of Glasgow School of Art and the Royal College of Art in London.

  2. I share a studio in the East-end of Glasgow called We-Studio with a couple of other lovely artists and designers.

  3. I enjoy teaching. I have worked part-time as a tutor in the Illustration department at Duncan of Jordanstone college of Art and Design in Dundee and as a guest lecturer at Glasgow School of Art. In the past I have given workshops, lectures and participated in symposium events as far North as Lews Castle College in North Uist and as far south as the Perra Gráfica gallery in La Paz, Bolivia.
