I was born in Yorkshire and graduated from Wolverhampton University with a first in Illustration. I now work as a full-time children’s book illustrator and artist and live in Sheffield with my wife, two young daughters and a cat called Molly.

I have had more than 30 books published to date and have worked with dozens of clients including Aardman, Marks and Spencers, BBC and Saatchi and Saatchi.

Over the last few years I have enjoyed many new creative challenges, working on a variety of projects including landscape paintings and murals.
