I've always loved drawing and the hours I spent as a child drawing in my room, listening to my favourite books on tape, are pretty similar to how I spend my time as an illustrator now.

I graduated from Trinity College Dublin with a first in English and Drama, and worked for many years in theatre as an actor before incorporating more of my artistic practice into my work.

Stories have always driven my interests both on paper and stage. My work seeks to find the magical in the mundane, and humour in darkness. I'm hugely inspired by observing the world around me with my sketchbook.
