Character Illustration


This is where 'Kid with a Passion and a Crayon' was born. My 5 year old daughter has brought out a child like side to me. A combination of my experiences diving around the world and my daughters fascination with the sea from her time with me in Mozambique as well as her fascination with magical beasts and our love of the African continent inspired these characters which form the basis of my childrens' stories.
