About me

I am a Creative Retoucher originally from Yorkshire, but now based in the South West. I have over 14 years experience in Retouch and Artwork campaigns for world renowned commercial brands, as well as managing a growing portfolio of my own clients both in the UK and internationally.

A bit more about me…

I love what I do and I\’ve always had an interest in all things visual, whether photography, film, illustrations or great design work.

As my passion developed in my younger years, I decided to pursue a career in Design, leading me on to study at the University of Leeds. After 4 years of progressive learning, hard work and the occasional pint, I graduated with a Masters degree in Graphic Design.

My studies gave me a great foundation to build on, allowing me to immerse myself in the working world in both technical and creative roles. Most importantly these experiences allowed me to develop and refine my skills to what I now offer today as a freelance professional.

In the last 6 years my interest and focus has turned to Creative Retouch, Compositing & Adaptation. Freelancing as a Retoucher in and around the UK has allowed me to be fortunate enough to work with a wide range of agencies, photography studios and individuals alike.
