About me
Hi! I'm a creative whose interest in the decorative and graphic qualities of visual design has led to an illustrative style that combines pattern, figurative and ornamental elements. My love of colour and mindful approach also bring a particular characteristic to my work. Although gouache is my favourite medium I often combine media using watercolour, ink, coloured pencils and metallics as well as digital methods.

  • Papillons Précieux
    Papillons PrécieuxCreated for the Advanced Track of the Make It In Design Winter School (2024) in response to a brief titled 'Metamorphosis'. ------- Butterflies spend much of their lives in transformation. They were a popular motif amongst Art Nouveau artisans who transformed them from fleeting to eternal beauties via the art of enamelling and gem setting. This was the element of metamorphosis that I took for my design. There are three colourways - topaz, emerald and amethyst. ------- Hand-painted/digital
