My approach to illustration is inspired by traditional methods. The placement of text, balance, and the sentiment of the illustration is the most important. The illustrations usually have something to do with what I'm reading or where I am.
When I find a matter either beautiful, annoying or hilarious, an idea for something has probably and quietly been born, but then stored away carefully for later.
I mainly make and sell greetings cards and prints to independent stores here in the UK, Ireland, Australia, and the USA.
All my images are made using traditional collage techniques, using old books, photographs, unwanted reading materials, found objects - a pallet knife and glue.
Since late 2015 I've been concentrating more on workshops, and commission work for products, books and magazines.
