I am an illustrator and animator, who has simply loved drawing, telling stories and making things since I was old enough to hold a pencil. 


I have created work for a variety of clients including Gwledd Conwy Feast, Mostyn, Magpie Resources and Kitchen Party Cooks, have had illustrations and short stories published by Cracked Eye, Wrap and Mardi Books and created animations for theatre, film and festivals. 


I regularly run illustration and animation workshops for children and young people, in schools, galleries and festivals including Conwy Feast, WOMAD, End of the Road, the National Portrait Gallery, the British Museum, Conwy Arts CouncilRuthin Craft Centre and Mostyn.

Other projects include an artist residency at a care home for older people with advanced dementia; an artist residency at AQB in Budapest, Hungary; animated visuals for collaborative performances at Blinc Digital Arts Festival in North Wales and Sensoria Festival in Sheffield.


I have curated exhibitions, art directed short films, made music videos and fought dragons*. I love swimming, chocolate, fake fur, herons, yellow and Toby**. 


I am available for commissions, collaborations and workshops. I love rummaging through ideas of all sorts, so please drop me a line if you think we could work together.

**Not necessarily in that order
