I am a Scottish illustrator with an aptitude for craft and sculptural work. I particularly enjoy adapting illustration into a more three-dimensional form using various materials including paper, clay, recycled plastics and more recently metal work. The majority of my work stems from the natural world. My creations highlight environmental impacts and should prompt us to consider our wildlife with its rightful respect and admiration
