About me

Hello, I currently work as a freelance illustrator and also work part-time as an Art Director at I have a playful, versatile style. I work in vectors, watercolour, gouche, dip pens and markers. I am ambitious and find myself working on several self-initiated projects at a time. I've set up a print project called 'Punnet & Hoo' which acts as a platform for concept-led illustrations and witty graphic artworks. Prints will be available for purchase after the projects launch later this year. I am also conceptualising, writing and illustrating several children's picture books. I am represented by Peters Fraser & Dunlop, a Literary Agency who are circulating my work to publishers. As an Art Director I love bold ideas and playing with colour. I can confidently juggle large workloads, work to tight deadlines and thrive off collaboration and conceptual work. Working at has given me 5 years e-commerce experience, and has allowed me to progress quickly, explore all aspects of design, own campaigns and shoots, illustrate commercial projects both print and digital and thrive in a small and growing, entrepreneurial environment. My design background means that as an illustrator I have a good commercial understanding. I am experienced at working on concepts through to delivery, working with clients and know the importance of answering a brief. Please find examples of my work at
