I gained a BA in Graphic Design (1996) from Saint Martins School of Art (now Central Saint Martins) and a PgCert in Education (Art and Design) (1994) from De Montfort University.
Between 1991 and 1996 I worked as designer for a variety of theatre companies and productions including the Royal Shakespeare Company and Kenneth Brannagh’s Renaissance Theatre Company.
I have contributed articles about different aspects of illustration to a number of journals and my book, illustration in Laurence King’s Portfolio series. A novel, The Syndicate, is currently being edited for publication.
I was a visiting lecturer on this course from 1990 and set up the college's Graphic Design Portfolio course (1994) and Graphics Summer School (1994). In 1998 I became Illustration Route Leader. I also work as the Central Saint Martins Co-ordinator for UAL Centre For Drawing.
