About me

Graduating from Kingston University in 2016 in Illustration Animation, my work is multidisciplinary and driven by pattern, shape and colour and how we can use these to communicate and learn. I love drawing and creative workshops alongside interactive and editorial design. I have previously interned at Human After All, Jealous print gallery & studio and assisted Will Yates-Johnson and Samantha Warren with their work. This has included working with clients such as the Science Museum and Weapons of Reason. I recently founded Cognitive Workshop. The brand sells a playful activity sketchbook and accompanying workshop that encourages visual thinking and creativity. The workshops run across Brighton and London and use a range of pattern and print based activities whilst the book is currently for sale online. Take a look at my website to view my work!
