I'm an illustrator based in the Southside of Glasgow, Scotland. I work from my home-studio alongside my collection of plants, and my partner Tim (he's a film-maker). Our dog Jeffers can be found snoozing somewhere nearby too. 

I studied Illustration at Edinburgh College of Art, class of 2009. My work is currently focused around pet portraits and freelance illustration projects. I also produce a range of prints which you can find in my shop (I do wholesale too - if you're a retailer get in touch!).

I work mostly in pencil, gouache and ink. My approach to drawing and painting balances expressive mark-making with tiny details. I love to make a good mess and I always aim to create illustrations which are full of character. 

My favourite things include dogs, going to the beach, my sofa, anything stripy and/or turquoise, making bread and baking cakes (and eating them). I'm left handed, quite clumsy and my all-time favourite film is Back To The Future (1, 2 AND 3).
