I am an artist, illustrator and designer based in Newcastle upon Tyne. Since graduating with a degree in Fine Art from Northumbria University, I have produced a variety of work including commissioned paintings, illustrations, album covers, publicity material and wedding stationery. Please explore my website and feel free to contact me if you would like to commission a unique, bespoke piece of art or design!

I am excited to be working with Fiona Veitch Smith on a series of childrens picture books. The first three books, 'David and the Hairy Beast', 'David and the Kingmaker' and 'David and the Giant' are now available, we had a great time at the book launch in November. If you missed it, don't worry, you can go to the crafty publishing website to order your very own copies! Look out for the next book in the series, 'David and the Lonely Prince', due for release in 2013.

I also work as an Events & Outreach Intern at The Holy Biscuit, a community arts partnership between the Biscuit Factory Gallery and The Methodist Church. Situated in the heart of Newcastle’s arts quarter it provides a platform for community and cultural engagement. We are currently working with local primary school children, on a project focussing on the Lindisfarne Gospels, which will culminate in an exhibition of resultant work.
