About me
I have over six years experience in hand lettering and design. Originally starting out as a chalkboard artist, I moved over to the sign industry where I now mainly work in digital management and producing neon signage. In my spare time I create prints and greeting cards which are currently available to purchase via an online retailer
Projects
  • Thortful Greeting Cards
    Thortful Greeting CardsUsually I'm pen to paper kind of girl but during lockdown I've taught myself how to use Procreate and have produced some greeting cards which are now available to buy on Thortful.com
  • Ohh Deer Box Competition
    Ohh Deer Box CompetitionOhh Deer recently ran a competition asking artists to submit a design to cover a box and here was mine! I choose this quote as I liked the idea of the box being delivered and happy to see someone
  • Mental Health Awareness Week
    Mental Health Awareness WeekFor mental health awareness week the theme was kindness. I created this piece to represent self love and being kind to yourself

    Sales and MarketingKemp London Ltd
    London, United KingdomFull Time
    I have worked with various creative organisations producing neon artworks for special events, artists, advertising and more. Working within a small team of neon specialists, I manage and quote signage enquires sent through our website. Once an order has been placed I produce vector artwork for approval, manage a production schedule, liaise with suppliers and oversee the project from start to finish. Time management and organisational skills are high on my priority list as it’s not unusual for me to be managing numerous projects at once
