I'm an architect-trained artist, author and illustrator. Originally from Scotland via Canada and Birmingham, I'm now based in London.
I use my pictures to tell stories.
I’m seeking a publisher for my second book, ARTHUR: the true (nearly) story of a bicycle mechanic who grew up in the shadow of WWII. It’s a graphic novel about self-reliance, camping, and respect for the elderly.
I’m also researching a biography of John Evelyn, Deptford plantsman and friend of Samuel Pepys.
I'm inspired by humanity, democracy, gardening, ancient Greek vase paintings, and songs about 21st-century angst.
