I illustrate as a way of visually expressing my experiences and views of the world. Whilst leading the design team for my Uni magazine, Impact, I was exposed to a range of styles and creative processes. Discovering my own style beyond magazine design and finding different subjects I was interested in depicting, I thought it was the right time to begin sharing my work. I was taken aback by the amount of interest and interaction with my illustrations. And this made me think: if people were actively engaging with my work, could I use art as a way to add a bit of fun and colour to people’s lives and make them appreciate the world around us? As you’re reading this, you can probably guess what the answer was! Art has the power to make us laugh, make us cry, make us think. It can transcend time, transporting us back through our memories or catapulting us into the future - an expression of who we are - It can offer us a different perspective on life as we look through the eyes of our friends, family and fellow humans. My vibrant illustrations are centred around creating an emotive feeling within people. Whether using a T-shirt, a print, or even a surface pattern to connect, I believe it is through harnessing this power that we can learn to appreciate all that we have around us.

Best Magazine Design NominationStudent Publication AssociationAs Artistic Director, my team and I were one of nine teams nominated for the Best Magazine Design out of all the student publications in the country (academic year 2019-20). We believe our magazine got a nomination because of our engaging illustrations, which are colourful and also relevant. Leading the design team, I have tried to emphasise the need for the design to enhance the article not distract from it.
