i completed my degree in 2008 and illustration and childrens story writing was by far my strongest and most enjoyable area. i have written my first book with full illustrations, the title of which is 'way back when i was what they called a bairn' its a childs outlook on life in a working class house. it has traditional northern feel with photographic collage illustrations that make the old and gritty settings appear more exciting and fun for the age group.
my second book im working on now is 'when the dinosaurs moved planets' this i hope to include more gouache hand painted illustrations for with more use of tactile finishes and attention to fine details.
id love to illustrate for other peoples stories and in the future publish my own. if anyone thinks im well suited to what they are doing please get in touch my imagination can get sucked into anything!
