About me

My career as a technical illustrator began in newspapers where I produced info-graphics. During this time I worked in the United Kingdom and North America. Since returning to the UK I have worked with a growing number of publishing groups and design agencies.

I produce illustrations in a range of styles, often adapting the design of a project to fit a particular subject or publication format. Most importantly, I hold the clarity and presentation of the subject above all else. I am highly experienced in the production of technical diagrams, infographics, statistical charts, maps, icons, scientific and medical illustrations. I am also able to research and write material to accompany illustrations.

Based near to Bristol and Bath, I am able to travel throughout the UK and abroad when required. I am available for freelance projects.


BBC magazines, EMAP, BBC Worldwide, the Globe and Mail, Guardian Media Group, Future Publishing and IPC Media


Several of my newspaper projects have received awards of excellence from the Society of News Design in the field of Information-Graphics and Charting.
