Originally from the Scottish Borders, I now currently live and work in Hebburn, South Tyneside. I studied illustration at Newcastle College (1998-2000) and at Sunderland University (2000-2001), gaining a degree in Environmental Illustration. I then worked as a graphic designer for 5 years until deciding to revisit my art practice in 2014. Represented by Silver Street Gallery in Whitby, I produce mixed media illustrations using pen, ink and acrylic paint. Notable exhibitions include an exhibition of work for sale in Fenwick, Newcastle, and an artist’s residency in Jarrow Hall.
