All about me…

I live in Wisconsin, USA, but I am originally from the rainy north of England.

I have been doodling ever since I could hold a pencil and I haven’t stopped since. In recent years I have progressed onto the Wacom Intuos tablet, with my software of choice being Sketchbook Pro for finished work. I am also proficient with Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. The bulk of my prep and practice work is still done with pencils, ink and watercolor paints.

I have mainly focused on political editorial cartoons and short humor strips in the past. I find Madison to be a very dynamic and politically charged environment – a constant source of material. Working in the children’s hospital has taken me in an unexpected direction and landed me in a spot that I feel I have fitted all along. I continually draw inspiration from my surroundings at the hospital and the children I interact with. I created a hand drawn children’s picture book for a family gift and since then I have also focused on illustrating for children.
