Illustrator / Author / Artist

"Hi Keith, Dylan LOVES his book! Of all his Christmas books, Pirate Jack is his favourite. He has even named his build-your-own-pirate-ship 'The Scallywag'."

"And fantastic they are, my Year 2 class are very much enjoying them"


“Having painted and been fascinated by wildlife since childhood, when I first became a professional artist I initially decided to concentrate on one subject and chose the oriental and beautifully ornamental fish, Nishikigoi (Koi) - for their power, grace and colour variations.


I’ve embraced the same work ethos that the most eminent Japanese Koi breeders use in nurturing their Champions:

Dedication, patience, detail, enthusiasm and passion.


These skills have enabled me to expand and experiment with my subject matter, from Tropical Marine fish and other Sealife inspired by my scuba diving experiences to Food Art, inspired by…..eating!


My love of colour, imagination and drawing has lead me to writing, illustrating and self-publishing my own range of children’s picture books. My stories are based on things I care about or seen…from the rubbish in our oceans (conservation) to “Jack” our old one-eyed (Pirate) cat!”

I hope my illustrations and stories inspire children to draw, write and read more...
