I grew up in the West Midlands, UK. I have loved art ever since I was a kid! After finishing school I went on to study a foundation in Art and Design at Warwickshire College, UK where I developed an interest in Graphic Design. I then went to Southampton Solent University and achieved a BA in the subject. After graduating I worked at London based magazines GQ and ARENA as a junior designer, however I eventually pursued a very different career as a police officer.
My passion for art never subsided. In 2010 I became a father and enrolled in an MA at Cambridge School of Art, Cambridge, UK.
In 2014 I completed my MA and continue to work as a full-time police officer.
My debut picture book, Officer Panda: Fingerprint Detective was published by HarperCollins, US in 2015 and has since been shortlisted for the Cambridgeshire Libraries Read It Again! award! I have two new picture books coming out next year, The Boy and the Blue Moon by Sara O'Leary with Macmillan and One Wave at a Time by Holly Thompson with Albert Whitman & Company. I am also working on a new book about a Sea Otter rescue pup called Luna called Pup 681, with Macmillan, more on this soon!
