Illustrator, artist, BBQ pitman, coffee addict, video game lover and street art fan.

I'm originally from Bristol where I grew up seeing street art from the likes of Banksy, Inkie and other amazing artists. I moved to Leicester in the late 90's to study Interior Design at De Montfort university where I eventually graduated with a degree (what degree level you ask? Let's just say I got a degree and leave it at that...)

After university I was lured away from the field of design by the bright lights and copious free alcohol of the hospitality industry. I spent nearly 20 years working, running and eventually owning bars. 

During this time working behind bars I continued to produce art, initially as a labour of love but eventually as my workload increased I transitioned into a career as a professional illustrator and artist.
