Iam a freelance illustrator/artist from Newcastle upon Tyne, North east England, United Kingdom. My main passion is nature and really anything that flys walks and crawls ! Since childhood I have loved natural history this forming the basis for my "everyday inspiration". I enjoy working in a variety of mediums and styles, but currently have been concentrating on black and white pen work, along with more subtle watercolour painting.
Currently I have been creating "circular" pen and ink images about the size of a CD, with typical subject matter including trees, birds, deer and a variety of other flora and fauna. Artists that inspire me include Aubrey Beardsley, Rembrandt, Turner, Girtin, Friedrich and the Polish illustrator Jan Pienkowski.
I also recently completed a series of Christmas greetings cards with little mice and rabbits in various guises. Photography is also a genre Iam becoming increasingly interested in my favourite subjects being landscapes, nature and urban environments.
