Inspired by the classic film of Edgar Allan Poe’s novel I tried to capture the horror of the times, the witchcraft, religious mania and the plague pits.

Formally trained as an illustrator I find inspiration everywhere and my followers know my work is often comical or sad, light or dark. I enjoy both equally. My line work is done using traditional pencil roughs, working through themes I enjoy, twisting narrative and design into a surreal blend until I have an image I am happy to take further. Most images go on to be reworked in ink or brush pen and coloured digitally.
