I am experienced in creating patterns and designs specifically for use in the fashion and textile industries. When it comes to creating textile designs I normally work with Kate, a senior textile designer with over 12 years experience designing for many major retailers and brands. Together we enjoy creating interesting and fresh designs based on your brief and can supply files in a number of formats so that they can be sent direct to your manufacturer.
I love illustrating books. My most recent large scale book illustration project was illustrating a book created for children who have lost a parent, following the death of its author's (Caroline Twigg) husband Iain from a brain tumour aged just 33. It was a very emotional and difficult book to illustrate as it meant so much to Caroline and I but we couldn't have been happier with the end result.
If you would like me to create illustrations for your book please get in touch. I am experienced in all stages of the process from creating the artwork, scanning it and laying out pages and type, through to selecting prints, proofing and supplying files for print.
I've worked on a number of great installation and set designs as part of some great teams. I love all aspects of scenic painting and set dressing, but some of my favourite jobs are pictured here.
I also have experience in assisting in the running and management of projects, including sourcing staff, organising logistics and sticking to budgets.
If you would like me to help you run your project, or book me to work as a scenic painter or dresser, please get in touch.
Recent work includes: Painting decorative floors and walls for the Black Friday installation for Amazon, 2017.
Scenic painting and project management assistance for Amazon Prime unboxing event, London, summer 2018.
Set dressing for Justin Timberlake's gig for Spofity at The Roundhouse, 2018.
Window display for Selfridges, London, 2018.
Decorative painting for the Kindness Wall, which I worked on with my good friend Tristan Cochrane (www.tristancochrane.com), for Kindness.org, Southbank, London, 2018.
Over the last ten years, I have worked on lots of branding and rebranding projects and designed logos for a range of businesses, from one-man-bands through to larger companies.
I don't use any templates for any of my designs and they are all created from scratch especially for you. My approach to design is very collaborative and inclusive. I'll send you heaps of sketches and ideas along the way to be sure that I am creating a visual identity that best represents you and your brand and to ensure you feel as involved in the design process as you would like to be.
I offer two main packages for Branding and Logo Design:
Package One - Lovely Logo:
Includes: Brand consultation - We meet face to face over a cuppa or catch up via the phone to discuss your business, your target market, ethos and design likes and dislikes to begin to create a visual look for your company or rebrand. Colour palette - I supply you with a colour palette comprising the three to four colours that will make up your brand. Logo design - Following the brand consultation we will then start focusing spefically on your logo. I will send you five initial sketches for your proposed logo, based on our chats, and from those five you can choose your favourite for me to develop further. Following your feedback I will then send you four more designs based around the logo design you have chosen but with some variants. Following further feedback I will send you a final three designs which may have slightly different colourways or minor layout changes from which you choose your logo.

I absolutely love drawing and painting portraits and do lots every year. Some people ask for one off bespoke paintings and drawings of themselves, their children or families, whereas other people want a portrait to use as part of their business's branding or in a logo. I can also do painted portraits or drawings of famous people, fave film stars, or celeb crushes - all of which make great pressies!
I work in a number of different mediums when it comes to doing portraits. One off portraits tend to be done in pencil, watercolour or gouache, while portraits for web or business use tend to be drawn by hand first then finished off digitally.
Portraits start at £150
Your wedding stationery sets the tone for your wedding and is the first part of your wedding that your guests will see! I have been creating unique and bespoke wedding stationery since 2006 and I love working with couples to create something totally original to them. Please get in touch to find out more!
Illustration is my passion, and over the years I've illustrated tons of different things, for big companies, one man band's and individuals. I work in pen and ink, watercolour, gouache, acrylic, pencil and digitially. My illustrations have been used on websites, as part of logos, branding material and leaflets. They've also featured in books and been turned into pins, prints and textiles - all of which I have helped the client source a supplier for. Illustration work starts at £150, get in touch to find out more!
