About me
I'm looking for work where I can make a positive impact on clientele as well as colleagues, and an environment where I can learn, grow and share my skills to the benefit of others. After working at a computer software company in marketing, social media, and event planning, I moved to London in 2013 to study Illustration and communicative design. I graduated from the University of the Arts London with a First in my degree, and Distinction on my dissertation degree essay. Since then I have been working as an Assistant Designer and General Manager of Affairs at an Interior Design company in Florida. I have now (in 2020) moved permanently back to the UK and am looking for work where I can make a difference, particularly within the creative industry. Please contact me if you have any questions or if you'd just like to say hi!
Projects
  • Illustrations and Interpretations of Howl's Moving Castle by Diana Wynne JonesA fun whirlwind of a project for the Folio Society and House of Illustration competition featuring the literary magical masterpiece by Diana Wynne Jones. It was a dream to work on such a beloved story, and I can't wait to illustrate more books in the future.
