Editorial and Corporate illustration:
Here are samples from a few large illustration projects that I’ve been pleased to create.
Throughout the 80s and 90s I occasionally illustrating editorial when I lived in London – images for book covers, some magazine work and ‘English as foreign language books’ for companies like Heinemann Educational.

Below are the Twelve pastel images created for the UK Cosmopolitan Horoscope page 1990 ; all in Private collections in Australia, Ireland, and the UK …
When I moved to Lincolnshire in 1993 a company called Aura Soma commissioned me to illustrate a set of 100 double sided tarot cards – this project took over a year’s intense work to complete and led on to other large projects (see below).
Then to celebrate the Millennium the company gave me carte blanche to write and illustrate a calendar and a book that was my interpretation of their policy on colour, astrology and mythology. Each goddess image was used for labelling for the company’s Essence products …
As well as illustrating for individuals and local companies, I’ve been working throughout 2017 illustrating a book of 9 images for a Danish author. I will share these images when the book is published.
