About me

I'm an architect-trained artist, author and illustrator. Originally from Scotland via Canada, I'm now based in London. 

I use my pictures to tell stories. 

I'm inspired by humanity, democracy, gardening, ancient Greek vase paintings, and songs about 21st-century angst.

I'm exhibiting with the Blackheath Art Society at the Old Naval College Museum in Greenwich for a month from 12 September 2019, and I'm the featured artist at Lee Green Open Studios on the 16-17 November weekend (where I'll be demonstrating the joys of drawing on iPad and iPhone). Do come and say hello.
