About me

I am a multidisciplinary illustrator and graphic designer living in West Yorkshire, specialising in the fields of publishing, editorial, packaging and branding. In 2008 I created the vintage inspired toy brand Ridley's House of Novelties for Wild & Wolf. Since then I've adapted and reinterpreted the brand semi annually to great success over multiple sub-brands and diverse markets, selling worldwide in over 60 countries. I also create dynamic artwork for some of the world's leading publications and brands.

Using a combination of digital and hand drawn techniques, my work is a vibrant mix of movement, bold colours and humour, often featuring whimsical characters and abstract typography.
