Thank you for visiting.

I am an illustrator from County Wicklow, living and working by the sea in Dublin.

I've always enjoyed the interplay between words and images. At my fine art graduate show, I explored this through the medium of cake decoration!

Since then I've worked in the fields of graphic design, and website development, while also exploring my passion for art and illustration, especially picturebooks.

Some favourite things - really old silent films, monster music, an endless supply of mint chocolate, trees in the wind, dogs in the snow, birds just being birds, and the Skelligs!

'Where Are You, Puffling?' is my debut in picture book illustration.
Retold by Erika McGann from a story by my uncle Sean. It's published by O'Brien Press, also in Irish as 'Cá Bhfuil Puifín Beag?'.
A special edition was published for World Book Day 2020, becoming a bestseller!
