About & Contact

Hello! I’m a British/Canadian illustrator based in Belgium. In my images I create scenes through character, shape and dynamics, with a reduced colour-palette. I love printmaking, and printmaking techniques strongly influence how I construct my images.

I grew up in Germany and studied in London, Berlin and Vancouver, graduating with a Diploma/MA in Fine Art from Kunsthochschule Berlin-Weissensee in 2007. I worked as tutor and technician for many years at Edinburgh Printmakers before moving with with my partner and our risograph machine to the Belgian Ardennes, where I now work as a freelance illustrator.

I love applying illustration to many forms - from limited edition prints, editorial illustrations and posters to stationery, greeting cards and patterns. If you’re interested in working with me I’d love to hear from you!
