Born in Harlow, UK, Mike has been fascinated by maps and architecture for as long as he can remember, spending endless days of his childhood drawing local buildings and maps of places both real and imaginary.

Since graduating from the University of Westminster in London in 2008 he has developed a specialism in detailed map illustration and architectural drawings, working for a variety of clients around the world including the publishers HarperCollins, Penguin, Random House and Scholastic, and brands such as Butlins, Condé Nast, Countryfile Live, Dishoom, Goodwood and Vanity Fair. For more details about his commissioned work, please visit Mike's portfolio website.

Since 2013 he has been represented by the international illustration agency Illustration Ltd, and he now lives and works in Valencia, Spain.


All of Mike's print designs are completely original, unique creations designed entirely by his hand, requiring many hours' worth of research, dedication and hard work.
