About me
Illustrator and GIF Maker, making the move from working for a media brand for two years back to freelance. Right now I'm exploring themes of equality, feminine sensuality and new motherhood. On the lookout for agency representation and fun projects, in particular book illustrations and GIF packs for brand campaigns.

  • Everywoman - Everyman Cinema for International Women's Day
    Everywoman - Everyman Cinema for International Women's DayFor International Women’s Day, Everyman Cinema are celebrating the women who make cinema magic. ✨ Everywoman imagines a world where the cinema is run by and for women, and features films with woman leads.

  • Bedhead Be Bold Project Competition Win
    Bedhead Be Bold Project Competition WinBedhead by Tigi teamed up with Stylist Magazine to ask creatives of all disciplines to create a piece inspired by a product from the Bedhead range.

  • Soft Girl Summer
    Soft Girl SummerIt’s really important to me now, after years of unknowingly perpetuating unrealistic beauty standards in my art, to represent beauty in all its forms. I like to imagine worlds where babes who’ve been made to feel insecure about their bodies can all hang out together, and appreciate themselves and each other just as they are. So here’s my inclusive pool party, for anyone who’s ever shied away from beaches or pools because they don’t feel their body is ‘summer ready’, this is soft girl summer!
  • Billie
    BilliePersonal piece inspired by Billie Eilish's shoot with Vogue, her words in the accompanying interview, and perhaps even more by the public reaction to her transformation.
  • We Deserve to Get Home Safe
    We Deserve to Get Home SafeA pair of personal illustrations I created to illustrate the fear for women's safety following recent news. These pieces gained a great deal more engagement than is proportionate to my following on Instagram, which I feel shows the importance of art in speaking out on these issues.
  • We Are Fearless Queens
    We Are Fearless QueensWe Are Fearless Queens is a collection of words of wisdom from icons such as Bille Eilish and Beyoncé for Ebury Books. I had the pleasure of illustrating some of these babes for each chapter and the front cover.
