Initially I studied a 3 year Graphic Design Course and firstly was employed as a Book Designer for Longman Pearson, designing children's books and commissioning illustration. After 8 years I set up on my own as a Freelance Designer for Longman Pearson, Cambridge and Oxford University Presses.

Alongside my design work I began producing and selling my own linocuts then progressing to wood engraving to enable me to achieve finer detail.

I am an elected member of the Society of Wood Engravers.
