Illustrator and Imagination Generator
Welcome to my website.
I enjoy making art in a variety of media including drawing and painting materials, collage, photography, letterpress and sculpture.
I draw from my surroundings as well as day to day experiences, capturing those small memories from life’s passing moments. This impact of memory to hand creates the release from which characters form and situations develop. I explore visual narratives and sequential images that evolve into mini realties, hopefully motivating young minds to discover and explore his or her environment and imagination.
My Bear Griz
Billy has a bear called Griz. A Grizzly Bear. And the two friends have all kinds of wonderful adventures together. They go exploring, play hide and seek, eat peanut butter and honey sandwiches, share secrets and tell jokes. Griz is the best friend a boy could possibly have - whether he's a Grizzly Bear or a teddy bear...
This is a stunning debut picture book about a boy and his bear, in which the short text and tactile, large scale paintings bring Griz and Billy magically to life.
