Lake District Artist & Illustrator

I am an artist and illustrator based on the edge of the Lake District in Cumbria. Primarily I love to draw and am at my happiest with my sketchbook in hand working on a drawing. I specialise in drawing on location but am versatile in also creating drawings and illustrations from reference in the studio when drawing from life is not possible. I studied visual communication specialising in illustration at Edinburgh College of Art and am now working as a freelance artist and illustrator in Cumbria, my home county.

Illustrator for hire

I am available to undertake private and commercial illustration commissions including but not exclusively book illustration, pet portraits, visual interpretation displays and maps, editorials, branding and web illustration. My illustrations are mostly hand drawn in pen and watercolour but I can also work digitally and in other media to suit your needs.
