I’ve always drawn, and if you’re young – around five or six – and you find something you’re better at than other people you know, you want to do more of it. At first I was inspired mostly by Marvel comics from the 70s and 80s – that heightened sense of reality and and the idea that anything is possible. I think I’m still chasing that. WHY ILLUSTRATION OVER ANY OTHER MEDIUM?

Probably due to the early fascination with comic books, I’ve always been drawn to images which tell a story. It really doesn’t matter whether it’s a single piece or sequential storytelling, I want to know what’s going on in a picture! HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE?

My style’s really evolved over the past 10 years or so – I think I’ve found a bit more freedom rather than looking to see what everone else is doing. If I had to boil it down, I’d say I like to have clean, smooth lines, rich colours and plenty of texture. As for subjects, anything which allows me to take a regular idea in a slightly unexpected way is all I need.


I admire anyone who has the guts to do exactly what they want. Artistically, the likes of Hockney, Dave McKean, and Paula Rego because they’ve never been afraid to experiment and not be bound by any preconceived style. I also like Lizzie Mary Cullen’s smooth, structured line work and the freshness which still exudes from Sara Fanelli’s collages.
