Welcome to my media page

Television appearances are a lot of fun and I'm always up for that (I worked in a community theatre for ten years).
I've appeared, drawing live on BBC 2's Autumnwatch Unsprung wildlife programme and the Craft Channel.
There have been a few interviews on local radio and in 2016 a very colourful, illustrated interview in Guinea Pig Magazine
(yes there is such a thing!)
Please use the above contact information to book me for a media appearance, interview, drawing demo or poetry reading,
or a combination of those.

Here I am on one of the Craft Channel sets promoting a Card Hut, card craft CD.
I was cartooning pets from emailed photos sent in while on live air - no pressure!

This is a caricature of Sian Lloyd the weather girl being used in
a comedy musical performance on the S4C channel's Wedi Saith programe.

As well as drawing live on Autmnwatch in 2010 I also produced
caricatures of the presenters which were featured in 2011.
Chris packham was a treat to caricature!

"Just wanted to say thankyou for my wonderful cartoon.

Bill Oddie emailed;
"At last! A cartoon version of me that doesn't look like
a cross between David Bellamy and a beetroot.
Thanks so much. I am indeed flattered
All the best, BILL ODDIE."
