“Currently working on illustrations for a series of books for Wolverhampton University. I started this project while I was attending as a student, and have continued to provide illustrations on an ongoing basis.�


Crossword Challenge School of Science

Materials: Acrylic paint, photographs, photoshop. To be published Summer 2013

Smashing bottles to photgraph, collecting leaves and stones, buying fossils, cutting out newspaper print - everything goes in!


Do You Have the X Factor? School of Science

Materials: Acrylic paint, photographs, leaves and photoshop. To be published Summer 2013

I always use my own photographs in my work and combine these with textured backgrounds.


Mountain Ranges & River Rapids School of Science

Materials: (left) watercolour, pen, photoshop (right) acrylic paint, frottage, Photoshop. To be published Summer 2013.

I try to convey feelings of warmth or coolness with my choice of colours.


Castle Conundrum School of Science

Materials: Acrylic Paint, frottage, Photoshop. To be published Summer 2013

I enjoy bringing new textures into my work. The pencil rubbings were taken from a piece of pine and wardrobe hinges.


Magic Rocks

School of Science

Materials: Acrylic paint, photoshop. To be published Summer 2013

A series of mini paintings were produced for this piece as photographs and text were to be added at a later date. I like the flexibility that Photoshop brings into my work.


Natural Materials School of Science

Materials: Acrylics, frottage, mini spirograph, photography, photoshop. To be published Summer 2013

Actually hunted down an old, rusty, flat tin can so that I could paint on it, perfect. A mini spyrograph was used for the ‘carbon’ image and some pencil rubbings of some very old silver coins for ‘silver’.


The Rock Family School of Science

Materials: Acrylic paint, photoshop. To be published Summer 2013

Inspired by Deep Purple “In Rock” and “The Osbournes”. The puzzle text is very rough as this will be added at a later date.

Weathering

School of Science Materials: Acrylic paint, pen, photos, photoshop. To be published Summer 2013

Small paintings combined with pen sketches, acrylic painted backgrounds and then layered in Photoshop.

Rough idea provided.

Rocks from Fire IGNEOUS ROCKS

Peridotite

Formation: Created inside the Earth’s crust from magma, peridotite contains a lot of iron. In South Africa, diamonds have been found in peridotite rocks. Colour: Dark green or black Crystals: Large Use: Ornamental stone

Volcano

School of Science Materials: Watercolour, crayon, pen, photoshop. To be published Summer 2013

Occasionally, I like to use watercolour to create a more fluid feel for the illustration. My inspiration for this piece was Andy Warhol.

Adapted from ‘The Amazing Earth Model Book, Silver, D.M. and Wynne P. J. (1997)


Pyramid Puzzle School of Science

Materials: Acrylic paint, pen, photoshop. To be Published Summer 2013

I used an egyptian stencil to produce the penwork in the background of this piece and continued to use pen for the trees and sun.
