About me
Hello! I am an illustrator and artist living next to the sea in windy Brighton. I live in comfy oversize jumpers, patterned shirts, silver jewellery and massive headphones. I specialise in making colourful and characterful illustrations using procreate and photoshop. My background is in fine art, with a BFA in Fine Art from Falmouth University. I still love to paint traditionally using gouache or oils when I can find the time. My work often mixes natural elements, feminist concepts and ecological concerns, with underlying mythological themes. I make and sell prints of my illustrations, hand painted originals and decorations. All my prints are giclée archival gallery quality, produced and packaged in my studio. At every opportunity I endeavour to make my processes and packaging as environmentally friendly as possible.

  • Inktober 21 V2
    Inktober 21 V2This is a collection of illustrations I made for the annual Inktober challenge during October 2021. I followed Furry Little Peach's prompts on instagram and had great fun exploring as many of them as I could find time for. Initially I limited myself to only using black and white. This was a great challenge and I learnt a lot! But I love colour so I just had to go back through and colour them all. These are the colourful versions!

    Inktober 21A collection of illustrations made for the annual Inktober challenge during October 2021. I followed Furry Little Peach's prompts on instagram and had great fun exploring as many of them as I could find time for. This year I decided to limit myself to black and white for the first time. As I'm sure is apparent from my folio I'm a colour lover by nature! It was really interesting to restrict myself in this manner and taught me a great deal. Every year I learn so much doing this challenge, it is a
