I have been working as an illustrator for the last 20 years. I have published over 40 publications in their various forms. I have worked on education books, history publications, picture books and pop up books. I have achieved considerable recognition in particular with my own book 'Dylan’s Day' and with collaborations such as 'Mouseton Abbey'. Most recently my 'Stuff you should know about the Human Body', published by Quarto.
Before I began working as an illustrator, I started off as a fine artist. In 1988 took my foundation degree at Chelsea college of Art and then in 1989 went to Goldsmiths College in London, to study my B.A. After that I worked as an artist and exhibited and staged numerous exhibitions in London, UK and Europe. At the same time I worked in several London Galleries as a curator and exhibition manager. In 1999 I studied an M.A. in Curating and commissioning Contemporary and Fine Art, at the Royal College in London. I worked for 10 years as an art handling technician at Tate Britain, Tate Modern and Tate stores. I am now currently the gallery manager of New Art Projects in Bethnal Green London.
I have also been restoring a 1928 Fellows Morton and Clayton Motor boat called Owl, with my parents. I also own Hampton, its companion boat, (a butty), built in 1911, which I lived on for five years in King's Cross London.
I now live in Forest Gate with my lovely wife Jo and the dogs, Rory and Ralph. Oh and the cat....
