DESIGN FOR LIFE

I grew up in Warwickshire, England. 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, England, here 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. Despite this, my passion for Art never subsided and in 2014 I completed an MA in Children’s Book Illustration at Cambridge School of Art, which I studied whilst still being a Police Officer. Since graduating I have had several highly commended children’s books published by some of the world’s most prestigious publishing houses.
