I trained in Natural History Illustration at the Dyfed College of Art in Wales (1988-90). I went on to illustrate a variety of books and was with the SGA Illustration Agency for a number of years.

I am very fortunate to live in a part of rural Hampshire, where I have the best of both worlds , being close to the South Coast and the beautiful South Downs. I have a life long love of the fauna that surround me . Although when I was illustrating children's books I was asked to draw and paints wild life from around the world , since going freelance I am able to concentrate on sketching , painting the wildlife of the South Downs and the South Coast .
