About me
I am a Commercial Artist and Illustrator from the UK. My work is continually evolving and has become a joyful celebration of different people and cultures. With a background spanning Biomedical Sciences, Project Management, Graphic Design, Parenthood, Dog-Parenthood and a semi-professional Athlete, I bring my vast experiences to her work. I also have a love of the environment, interiors, learning, teaching and good doggos. I work across Advertising, Murals, Packaging and Editorial projects and am a regular feature on the Adobe Live UK streams. My clients include Adobe, Vans, Adidas, Flow Magazine, the British Red Cross, Klarna, Mondi/Pergraphica Premium Papers and many more. My ambition is to see my work on murals, to create beautiful campaigns and to have a solo exhibition! I'd love to hear from you about any projects I could help with.

  • Vans Oxford Window - Artist Spotlight
    Vans Oxford Window - Artist Spotlight‘Wear On’ campaign continued for Vans. For this window display, I used lots of the old International Women’s Day campaign including board and flowers which fit perfectly with my design. I painted big flowers and some more skateboards!
