About me

 

I am an Designer/Illustrator. Within my illustration practice, I use drawing to translate observations into communicable images, capturing people, places, and moments in time. With a sketchbook or camera in hand, I never miss an opportunity, although sometimes memory has to suffice. My aim is that each piece coveys a sense of place and a captured moment. Whilst in most cases I record what I see, I hope that through hand drawn lines, I can communicate further what it felt like to be in a particular place. I am also a co-founder of First Hand Reportage Illustration Collective, along side 7 other illustrators and designers. We record events through visual note taking and use social media to share the illustrations, live at events. The illustrations are typically curated into a chronological exhibition, creating a visual summary of the day.
