About me
21 year old Freelance Illustrator from West Yorkshire. My personal work revolves around cosmic horror and diverse character designs that perpetuate an eerie and disturbing aesthetic. I find myself focusing on the finer details and attempting to convey the maddening, menacing aspects of existentialism and personal thoughts through the medium of Illustration. I especially like to channel these ideas into both eclectic mini comic vignettes and standalone full rendered illustrations. Usually I work digitally in Procreate and Clip Studio Paint, but I also enjoy creating delicate traditionally inked pieces with a variety of brush pens and fine liners.

    The University of Huddersfield, BA (Hons) IllustrationThe illustrator gathers, enlivens, softens or perturbs – drawing our surroundings, histories and desires together in a journey from eye to hand. To draw is to navigate thresholds of difference and representation, in order to stage an encounter between singular, subcultural and majoritarian ways of seeing.    Escaping the page and crossing the frame, line and narrative become vectors. Wending, weaving and spreading, they seek new surfaces, and explore new contexts. By infiltrating disciplines an
