Watercolour illustrations for Arla Skyr Yoghurt packaging

Global design consultancy Elmwood commissioned me to create the illustrations for Arla's revived 'Skyr' range of yoghurts.

The packaging takes inspiration from the pure and striking Icelandic landscape, and makes quite an impact on shelf with such a strong and energetic design.

An iceberg is the hero image, reflecting the pure and thick natural yoghurt, whilst the water reflection beneath it creatively expresses the layers of flavour and texture including fruits in some variants.

In light of the new Apple Watch launch soon I've been creating a miniature compendium of historical watches from 1530 to the present day! Would love to know what you think.

Maple Syrup!

I for one have definitely not forgotten that its pancake day tomorrow! Here's a little illustration of YUM Vermont Maple Syrup in celebration of this day :) 

Did you know that maple syrup is usually graded according to colour, and the colour is usually dictated by the season in which the maple syrup is produced. Light amber hues usually give a milder flavour, with dark grades tasting richer and being ideal for glazes and marinades. Compared with other natural sweeteners its actually healthier hurrah!

End of an era

Well the time has come to end my contributions to The Simple Things magazine, I've worked on the 'Miscellany' section of the magazine for a few years now, producing 3 illustrations a month. The commissions have been weird and weirder and quite challenging, I've posted a few here and will post the Feb issue when it's on shelf.

Thanks for following!

1.) What to do with your leftover Halloween Pumpkin: A Pumpkin bird feeder of course. Hang it in the garden and hope it doesnt turn to mush.
2.) Practice makes perfect. Keep practicing that handwriting for those thank you cards. No biros or iPhones allowed.
3. )Play petanque. Anywhere!  


4.) Learn how to easily tie-dye a T-shirt. And make a lot of mess.

5.) Make a Crayola candle. Ok then.
6.) Pack an essential festival kit bag and dont forget the wet wipes!



7. )Write with a good old fashioned pen and ink on grubby looking paper.




8.) Pick up vintage tea-cups as and when you see them, charity shops, boot fairs ... Plant bulbs in them and give them away as presents. Just dont try and wrap them :)

A Portrait of John Hickenlooper for the National Journal


I was asked by the team at National Journal to paint a portrait of Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper leading up to his reelection in November.

I love painting portraits! I find it pretty challenging as I havent created many, and I tend to get impatient with waiting for paint to dry but I am enjoying layering to create shapes and tones.

You can read the full article here! Thanks for following :)

I'm so excited to say that I recently had the pleasure of working with the team at Jamie Magazine on an full page spread with some local chaps reviewing 10 UK Craft Beers.



I painted the folks reviewing the beer....Jim Jonny and Brad onto retro style beer caps for the title opener and then a jumble of the beer labels to the side.

Shhh! (Auction)

Tonight there will be a silent auction of an original painting on canvas by me :) all proceeds going to Friends of Sussex Hospice as part of the opening of my very first Brighton Open House.

The house is called 'Peanut Butter Tree Arts' because there's a tree in the garden with leaves that smell like peanut butter!  Personally I cant stand the stuff or the smell but that's a good thing otherwise there'd be none left in the jar to paint...?

Throughout the festival I'm displaying veggies, macaroons and oversized gin bottles, all original acrylic on canvas and all for sale! The house is open throughout May on Saturday and Sunday probably 11-6 ish. The address is 3, Lawrence road Hove BN3 5QA and the house is part of the West Hove trail if you want a planned route to see a few open houses.

Also at the house to get your hands on are my limited edition Giclee prints of my packaging paintings. I'd love to know what you think if you go along to the event. I'm hoping to escape the studio and see some open houses myself for a change! Here's the painting up for auction TONIGHT!
