I have been working at Bolton NHS Foundation Trust as the medical artist since 1995 and have developed working relationships with doctors and surgeons from around the Northwest region. I became the Medical Illustration Manager at Bolton in 2006 and I’m very proud to lead the department and still be able to undertake medical art commissions for the Trust.

I have a good understanding of anatomy and surgery and can work from a client’s brief preparing preliminary pencil sketches and developing them into the final artwork using Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. I do try to give my artwork a traditionally rendered feel although I produce them digitally. My particular areas of interest are surgical and anatomical illustration.

I have over 18 years experience producing a wide range of graphical work including teaching and research posters, medical diagrams in a graphical form and black and white line work for physiotherapy rehabilitation.
