I am a freelance illustrator who specialises in pencil and pen ink drawing. I love working with stories and I try to create a feeling of empathy with the characters I draw. This year one of my images was chosen for the hologram on the Bristol one pound notes. My aim is to work with authors and decorate their stories with illustrations.
I would like to give my thanks to anyone interested in my artwork, your support is a great motivation for me. This image entitled 'Prince' is based on a story a friend from Thailand told me. The story follows a prince who looses his birthright, becomes homeless and then has to go on a long journey through many hardships and challenges. I partly based the story of my long experiences in psychiatric care and dealing with trauma. I knew many people who were very damaged and unable; to me they were lost Princes and Princes who had lost their lives. They had faded memories of the lives they used to lead and the people they used to be. To me this was the most tragic part of living with the long term effects of psychosis.
