I am an illustrator specialising in storytelling and folklore themes
What I do
I work for the History press and individual storytellers to make visible and bring to life characters and themes from the rich oral tradition of both this country and places further afield
What inspires me
I am inspired by stories and the way they speak to our hearts as well as our experience of the world. also the natural (and the supernatural) world I inhabit and which also inhabits me
Why I do it
I have a wish to show others what I can see when I close my eyes and listen to Stories, a love of the process of making the imaginary real, because I can’t not do it….
My work this year
I am working on an exciting commissioned piece which will come to fruition next year as well as my continuing freelance work for the History Press.
