• Welcome to my new website! I still have lots of old and new projects to add to so please do check back every so often for updates.
     
    Here's a bit about me:
     
    I am an illustrator and children's picture book maker based in Dublin, Ireland.

    I studied graphic design in DLIADT in Dublin and worked in web design before moving into Illustration full time in 2005.

    My work is a mixture of illustration, painting and design and has appeared in advertising, newspapers, magazines, exhibitions and several other media and has been published in Ireland, UK, USA, France, Germany and several other European countries.
     

    In February 2011 my first picture book, The Lonely Beast was published by Andersen Press followed by The Great Explorer in February 2012.

    The Lonely Beast won the Specsavers Irish Children's Book of the Year 2011 in Bord Gáis Energy Irish Book Awards .

    My new book, The Brave Beast will be published on February 7th 2013.

     

    I am a member of Irish Illustrators which is host to 60 of Ireland's leading professional illustrators.

    You can read a recent interview with me in the Irish Times here.
     

    I maintain a blog with constant updates of work so have a look there to keep up to date with my latest projects and drawings. I have also just taken my first tentative steps into the world of Facebook so click my 'Like' button to stay up to date with that. Also follow me on Twitter for even more ramblings!

    If you would like to know more about me, discuss a project or meet for a chat I would be delighted to hear from you!
