My illustration work is colourful and retro-tinted, combining hand drawn and scanned paper elements with digital artwork. Most of the work is created in Photoshop and Illustrator, I strive for a textured look and feel in the images. The style is appealing to children but also suitable for projects aimed at adults.

My design work includes logo design, posters, flyers and corporate brochures. Thanks for taking time to check out my portfolio and don’t hesitate to contact me to discuss any illustration or design projects you may have. Click on the thumbnails below to see a larger image.

Illustration at Fire was a competition for Illustrators run by Fire as part of their €150,000 Arts Award. The theme was ‘Revolution’ and the judging panel was Leszek Wolnik of the Copperhouse Gallery, Laurence O’Byrne, Art Director at Ogilvy & Mather, and Illustrator Bren Byrne of the Small Print. I was absolutely delighted to be shortlisted to the final ten and won the fabulous prize of 1000 Euros of fine art printing from Fire. My idea of Revolution was to switch off from the never ending social media and do something just for yourself, not too be shared.
