Designer and illustrator // making things look good // Dad to 2 little boys and husband to an amazing wife

Hello. I’m Steve

Back in 2000 I decided to set up this website. Mainly it was a self indulgent way to showcase some of my design work and learn a bit of web editing. But since then I’ve started taking my illustration work more seriously, so now it’s mainly to showcase my artwork and offer my services in design and social.

I’ve worked as a graphic designer and social media lead in the Public, Private and Charity sectors for over 20 years.

I’m Trustee to two charities, I get involved with community projects, youth organisations and I am involved at my local church.
