About me

Manchester-based illustrator and designer. I graduated in 2013 from UCLan with a BA (Hons) in Illustration, and currently work freelance from my studio in Manchester. I specialise in portraiture with a focus on popular culture, combining my love for hand-drawn elements with digital illustration. My style also lends itself well to children's illustrations for books and toy packaging. In 2011 I launched my own online shop, selling designs on T-shirts, phone cases, prints, and various other merchandise. My products can be found on Etsy, Society6, and Art Rookie. I now also work as 1/4 of the creative team at Imperative Training in Manchester; creating content and advertising through various social media platforms, emails, newsletters, and blog posts. Other duties include graphic design & illustrations for infographics, social media, and company websites.
