Children’s illustration

I’ve always loved a good story (it must be my Irish heritage): from swashbuckling adventures to macabre fairy tales. So it’s no surprise that lots of my art takes on a storytelling theme - especially now that I have five-year-old twins of my own.

If you’d like to commission a piece for children, just get in contact. It doesn’t matter how small or large the project is - I’m happy to discuss anything from name art banners to storybooks.

Name art

When I first started my name art illustrations, they started as presents for friends and I didn’t realise how popular they would be! They’re all hand-painted, unique and completely customisable. They make perfect cards or nursery illustrations.

My illustrations often have a touch of the whimsy in them - including my mermaid series.

Character design

As an animator, I really enjoy creating characters and storytelling. It’s one of the reasons why I enjoy drawing children’s illustrations so much.
