I fell in love with cartoon illustration at the tender age of 7 when I discovered Mad Magazine.

Although I did attend art school, my illustration skills come primarily from working in the illustration industry.

My work is humorous, cartoony and full of expression. I love to tell stories that educate and entertain my audience. This makes my art appeal to younger audiences, as well as to adults who can appreciate it on a deeper level.

I work initially on paper, and then scan and paint digitally. I enjoy the flexibility that the computer gives me and alternate between hand and digital media to suit the requirements of each job.

My work has included a wide variety of projects; Children’s books, book covers, advertisements, mascots and board games, to mention a few.
