About me
I’m a digital illustrator with a fashion and editorial background, though I am ready and enthusiastic to take on new creative roles wherever they may find me. I have an education and familiarity with Adobe software including Illustrator, Photoshop, Lightroom and Animate. I tend to work best in a collaborative environment but I’m comfortable in most situations be it heavy teamwork or independent creation.

    During this period of study I worked closely with tutors and students alike to improve my skills as an illustrator, this gave me experience in working in professional environments, working with briefs and deadlines with a focus on independent learning and research. Such research led me into becoming familiar and accustomed to using software and tools such as: - Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, Lightroom, Acrobat and Animate - Lasercuting - Bookbinding - Ceramics, including creating, glazing and firing artworks - Lino Printing, including lino cutting - Screen Printing, including handling of inks, preparation and use of screens and ways to transfer onto fabric as well as paper. - Procreate - Computer literacy on Apple and Windows interfaces Learning these tools as well as mental tools such as working within team environments, collaborative creation, giving and receiving critical feedback and adhering to briefs on time and in professional conduct
