My name is Matthew, artist, illustrator and bonafide pixel wizard.
I started working as a Freelance artist after I graduated from Bournemouth University in 2009 and have been learning and exploring creative challenges with clients ever since.
Today I work on a whole range of projects for clients from America to Australia and everywhere in between. My passion is for childrens book illustration and board game art and this passion drives me to create beautiful artwork for both myself and my clients projects. I especially love collaborating with authors to understand their stories, worlds and vision, bringing them to life with my own classical whimsical style.
Rumana - Bok Bok Books
Matthew has been absolutely great to work with. He has worked with some intense deadlines, but has always managed to show up with a smile and get the job done. He worked on two covers for my publishing company, and was great at delivering according to the brief. I would definitely recommend Matthew for his design skills.
Laura VonDracek - Jemma and the Mermaids Call
Matthew has been an absolute joy to work with! Talented as both illustrator and designer, he helped me bring my vision of a spunky, spirited mermaid and her vibrant underwater world and adventures to life in what is now a beautifully illustrated Children's book. Always willing to go the extra mile, he worked hard to get the details right and made sure, I, as the client was happy with the results. His commitment, communication and availability were terrific even though we were on different continents. He is an illustrator willing to stretch himself and grow, which I deeply appreciated. His intelligence, humor and realness were always a pleasure to encounter. I would gladly work with him again.
Carl Williams - Marie of Bruyeres
First, Matthew has been extremely easy to work with and he has been a most willing and accommodating partner even with the endless nit picking changes we have requested. His wonderful and creative illustrations have made the story come to life and have brought the book to an excellent completion. In both English and French, this book will be read by children for many years to come. We could not be happier!
Dr. Kenneth Bruscia - Barcelona Publishers
Matthew has been doing cover design for Barcelona Publishers for the last few years. His designs are very creative and his use of color is masterful. He is very easy and pleasant to work with. He takes and uses feedback in a very agreeable way and uses it to improve his work. Matthew is always reliable and does his best to complete the design according to schedule. It is with great pleasure that I recommend Matthew with all five stars. He is very deserving.
Atousa - Caspian and the Enchanted Lake
Matthew has been an absolute pleasure to work with. He is full of great ideas and is extremely patient. Just what I needed to finish my wonderful project. I am already talking to him about my next project and do NOT hesitate to recommend him to my colleagues. He has always made time to address my concerns and worked to the highest standards exceeding my expectation. Wish this young artist all the best in his life.
