I graduated in Graphic Design from St. Martinís School of Art and completed my postgraduate studies at The Royal College of Art in London. I taught at Chelsea School of Art and freelanced as a designer before studying bookbinding and conservation at Guildford in 2000. I now work from my studio in Clerkenwell London on both private commissions and commercial work.
