I studied illustration & printmaking at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art,Dundee, then worked for DC Thomson in the artists department, followed by years as a freelance cartoonist in London. From 1999 to 2015 I was cartoonist of the Edinburgh Evening News and twice won Cartoonist of the Year at the Scottish Press Awards in 2003 & 2006.My work has appeared in the Herald,Scotland on Sunday,Sunday Post, Daily Record and the New Statesman. Three collections of my cartoons from the Evening News have been published in book form. Recently I have been doing more drawing and painting. The drawing I have entered is a view of sheds my back garden after a snow fall.
