About me
I’m a Bristol based illustrator and designer with a love of bold colour and shape. My work is playful, from my analogue collage to expressive pastel line work. I love the tactile nature of my process, if that's collaging directly from life or sketching a little bit of vibrance into the everyday. My work ranges across publishing, editorial and design. Whatever the project, I always approach it with a forward thinking, positive outlook, to create something uplifting and easy for anyone and everyone to engage with.
