About me
I am a Norwich-based illustrator. I create light-hearted line drawings packed with small details and bold colours that provide an original, playful and considered twist on a concept or editorial feature. Primarily, I would like to create work based around editorial, events and advertising where colour can thrive. Clients include: Music Base, GOOD/Upworthy, Premier Education, Young Ones & Cadisch MDA.

  • Alphabet
    AlphabetI challenged myself to create a new letter every day for 26 days in March. I worked to three constraints: must be about this yellow characters day-to-day life, a limited colour palette, and must be an isometric drawing. This project has vastly improved my way of working because I had to work out a way to generate ideas and produce them in just a day. Every letter has been drawn by hand on isometric paper and then coloured digitally on Adobe Illustrator
