About

 

PicMonkey Collage

Welcome to my site.  I am an Edinburgh based illustrator and work from a studio at Summerhall on the city’s southside.  In addition to being commissioned to design and illustrate pieces for private clients and businesses, I have designed and developed my own range of products which I sell via this site and presently to about 30 UK stockists and at fairs across the country.

I provide hand drawn images for businesses and private clients alike and am also able to produce stationery, prints and merchandise from commissions.  I am also approached by businesses who would like to use images from my existing portfolio and in cases like these, I consult the Association of Illustrators who advise on licencing fees and contracts.

My arts training is comprised of a foundation at Manchester and a degree in art history at Edinburgh University.   I lived in New York and worked at a contemporary art gallery in SoHo for a time.  For the majority of my earlier career I worked for London based retailers Graham & Green as an interiors buyer and designer.  We travelled across India and Vietnam in looking for interesting new things and the experience allowed me to develop an eye and knowledge of textiles and the decorative arts.

I am a member of The Association of Illustrators.  Business clients include Garden House School, Belgravia;  Edinburgh Business School; Story advertising agency, Edinburgh and Gordon Nicolson Kiltmakers.
