After studying Graphic Design and Illustration at Derby University, I went to work for Usborne Publishing. There I designed and created my first major modelmaking project, a picture book called ‘Everyday Words’, which sold over a million copies within its first 18 months of publication and has been translated into over 35 languages worldwide.

The majority of my work to date has been illustrating children’s books including: ‘Fairy Tales’, ‘Jobs People Do’ and ‘First Dinosaurs’ (Usborne Publishing). Other types of commissions have included museum exhibits and pieces for marketing and advertising.

I now work from my studio in South Derbyshire, using a variety of materials and techniques to create figures, props and sets. In order to further streamline my work I also use digital environments for my characters, and I have a photographic studio which allows me to create every level of my illustration in-house.

Currently, I am working on models for another young word book as well as digital illustrations for a bedtime story I have written, ‘The Bedtime Boat’.

Oh, and I don’t have a pet crocodile, but I don’t think my cat would have made such a good model.
