About me
I am a freelance illustrator and co-founder of Downward Frog. My illustration style combines bold outlines and colours with a hand-drawn feel. I have worked across several creative industry areas, including editorial, poster design, website iconography and children's prints/patterns. My illustrations provide creative solutions by engaging and educating in a fun and quirky way.
