About

I'm an illustrator and graphic artist based in London, UK. Specialising predominantly on movie poster art, comics and other pop culture creations.

I was born in England but grew up and lived much of my life in Wales. Always with a pencil in hand, I have been drawing since before I can remember, growing up my favourite things to draw were Batman and other TV and movie characters. That love for fantastical characters and exciting films has persisted and evolved as I've grown up. Being a lifelong film fan, the sense of wonder that I get from movies has been something I've always sought to imbue into my work.

I studied graphic art at Cardiff Art Academy, earning a distinction for a pulpy, vibrant graphic novel that I wrote and illustrated. Inspired by B-movies, Spaghetti Westerns, jidaigeki movies and 70's martial arts flicks I created bloody revenge tale that owes just as much to Sergio Leone's Dollars Trilogy as it does to the Lone Wolf and Cub films.

From here I went on to De Montfort University in Leicester, initially to study Game Art Design before transitioning into Fine Art where I graduated in 2016.

Currently I am the Head of Design for an international children's book publisher based in Battersea, London and also working as a freelance illustrator. As a freelancer I have worked on a variety of projects, ranging from poster illustrations to character concept art, portraits to clothing design - among others.
