Research and creation of original illustrations for journals, book publishing and academic clients in the fields of all life, medical and earth sciences. Illustrations are created digitally using Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator and Procreate but traditional media such as line, watercolour and halftone are also used when required.
I am a chartered biologist and member of the Royal Society of Biology, and a professional member of the Medical Artists' Association of Great Britain. My first degree is a B.Sc in Botany and Zoology and my second degree is a B.A. in Scientific Illustration. I have been a freelance scientific and medical illustrator since 1994. In 2002 I was awarded a Leverhulme Trust grant for a one-year artist residency at the Grant Museum of Zoology in London, and in 2015 I received the Pat Archer Award for my artwork exhibited at the MAA Exeter Conference exhibition.

My particular interests are illustration in the fields of veterinary and medical science, biology, molecular and cell biology, zoology, botany, ecology and palaeontology.
I work with clients all over the world. Please contact me to discuss your particular requirements, no matter how small or large the project. I will always try to work within your timescale and budget.
