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

I use my pictures to tell stories.

My first book THIS IS BIRMINGHAM: A Glimpse of the City’s Secret Treasures (a history of the18th-century Lunar Society) spent nine months on Waterstone’s Recommended list and was commended by The Guardian. Brummies still buy it as wedding presents, and gifts for friends from abroad. You can buy it here.

I'm seeking a publisher for my second book, ARTHUR: the graphic memoir of a resourceful scout leader and bicycle mechanic who grew up in the shadow of World War II.

I'm a member of the Association Of Illustrators, the Society of Authors and the Academy of Ideas.

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