About me

Originally with a background in traditional illustration and design for print, working with a wide range of agencies and creatives over the past few years has helped me develop into a confident, well-rounded digital illustrator and designer. Highly driven to constantly improve both personally and professionally as a creative, team member and leader. A proven ability to develop projects from concept through production to final delivery, ensuring that all work is effective, appropriate and delivered within agreed timelines.
