I'm a designer, illustrator and printmaker currently based in the South East and currently working as a Junior Production Designer for a West-London lifestyle magazine. I have a love for all things handcrafted and tend to use a variety of tools to create my work including watercolour, dry-point etching and a trusty pencil, sometimes the old ways are the best ways. Time spent completing a variety of projects has allowed me to develop a variety of skills including editorial design, book illustration & design and print design. In short, I have a passion for printmaking, hand rendered illustration and a good bottle of Pinto Grigio; I love to get my hands covered in ink and the unwind at the end of the day with a cold glass of wine.Locked Pro Plan feature
