About me

 

I love all things art and design. I am an innovative individual with a strong passion for design and an interest in all forms of visual communication. I’m a strong team player who is comfortable working as an individual or as part of a team and enjoys direct client interaction. I try to keep abreast of current trends and garner inspiration from a large range of sources, including industry publications, art exhibitions, current fashion and online resources as well as entering creative competitions. So what else have I done? - Organised and taken part in over 30 exhibitions of contemporary art and been included in Association of Illustrators’ publications. I also enjoy the challenge that comes with pitching campaigns for existing or new clients. What can I bring to you? - I have a strong work ethic and am able to take constructive criticism, as well as having excellent time management skills and a track record of delivering projects within an agreed timescale. I am looking for new challenges in order to expand my knowledge and experience. I love Illustrating in my free time and am currently art directing and illustrating a graphic novel called “Photographing Fairies” written by John Bamber.
