About me

Im a freelance illustrator currently based in the South East and have recently graduated from De Montfort University with a 2:1 in Graphic Design and Illustration. 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. My biggest source of inspiration is the world around me, including the wildlife that inhabits it or a good still life. During my time at DMU I was lucky enough to work on several live briefs including the annual Folio Society competition and the Macmillan Book Award. 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.
