I was both book illustrator and book designer for The thing that mattered most, which won the UK national CLPE poetry book award.

I have designed and illustrated three books for the Scottish Poetry Library; also a variety of material for the Edwin Morgan Archive which opened to the public in Spring 09.
Edwin Morgan was the major modern Scottish poet of the later twentieth century, appointed Scots Makar by the Scottish Parliament in 2004.He also had a strong international presence, both through his connections with the Concrete Poetry movement and through his accomplished translations.

Robert Burns Birthplace Museum The museum's Fame display tracks the bard's rise from ploughman poet to global icon. The Last Supper, shown here, was created by Iain McIntosh. Opened just in time for Burns Night 2011 by Scotland's new makar Liz Lochhead, the new museum to the beloved bard is an appropriately grand tribute to the great man.
