I am an illustrator, living in Essex with my partner and our one year old son. I studied Drawing at Camberwell College of Art, graduating in 2006. After college I continued to live and work in London for several years.
I still regularly visit to shop, see friends and exhibitions. London will forever be an important part of who I am.
