About me

I graduated from Oxford Brookes University where I studied Fine Art. Once Graduated, I became chalet chef in Meribel for 5 months where I discovered my passion for food and travel which spurred me on to develop a career in lifestyle Magazines. After having work experience/internships at magazines such as BBC Good Food, Olive, Jamie magazine, Woman and Home and Delicious magazine throughout 2016, I worked as a prop stylist assistant and home economist attending many shoots and filming sessions. I have now started my own freelance business as an illustrator, working mainly on food illustration. After 8 months on my own I now have several illustrated columns and monthly features in delicious magazine, (UK and Australia) veggie and Great British Food magazine, as well as designing recipe websites, logos, cookbooks and illustrations for events. I am very determined, pro-active, love working with people, have an artistic flare, great organization skills and a real enthusiasm for illustration. I also have a enthusiasm for TV and media and would love to have an opportunity to expand my skills.
