About me
I am a Scottish artist/illustrator based in London. I have a background in Fashion Design, studying at Grays School of Art and subsequently working across design, press and sales for multiple British design houses before becoming a full time artist in 2018. Brightly coloured, chalk pastel and charcoal drawings both of the nude and fashioned figure are the main focus of my work. Working on everything from client briefs, logo/invitation design, magazine editorial to window illustration and live illustration - often working as a live fashion artist backstage at fashion week or creating portraits for brands PR/customer events.
