about me ...


Hello! I'm originally from Carrickfergus, Northern Ireland and graduated from the University of Ulster, Belfast in 1995 with a First Class(hons) degree in Visual Communication.


After graduating, I travelled across to the Manchester to pursue a career as an illustrator, working initially as a graphic designer in advertising and Children's Book Publishing, and since 2002 as a freelance artist.


I have worked on many exciting projects - with book publishers in the UK and US, also creating illustrations for licensed characters, magazines, greetings cards, and product packaging.


I currently live in Manchester, UK, with my wife Annette and 3 children, Ellie, Lewis and Joe.


I am always on the lookout for new exciting projects, so please feel free to contact me for any more examples of my work or info.
