About me

I am an Illustrator from London, currently based in Portsmouth, where I have recently completed my BA (Hons) Illustration degree. I love to create work that is historical or educational based, illustrating key events and figures of our world using gouache, ink and collage with a variety of printed textures. I have an interest in life drawing, reportage drawing and painting onto ceramics. I also work digitally, using Adobe Fresco, Photoshop and Procreate.
