About me

 

I am a London-based artist and illustrator. I trained in Fashion Design (Womenswear) at Ravensbourne, London and graduated in 2012. Since then I have worked as a Design Room Assistant for a womenswear supplier in London and have volunteered for an off-grid arts organisation in Spain. I am a skilled illustrator working mainly in watercolour, pencil and digital editing. My work takes a lot of inspiration from my fashion training, with a strong eye for colour, print and the figurative.
