Projects
  • Jungle Explorer - Graphic Print
    An illustrated graphic print featuring a character exploring the jungle! Created digitally incorporating traditional hand-made print textures. Working digitally with Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator and my Wacom, allows me to work with bold shapes and bright colours, but my print work adds depth and an imperfect feel. A travel inspired print!
  • House Plants - Graphic Print Series
    Throughout the last month I have worked on a series of House Plant illustrations, graphic prints, to sell as a series of prints and postcards on my online shop. All inspired by my own collection of plants! Created in a bold, graphic and colourful style using Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Astropad, iPad Pro, and hand made Mono Print textures
  • Travel Poster Series - Graphic Prints
    This year I have started an illustrative series of UK Travel Posters, with the intention to open up an online store featuring the print series. Current prints involve Barmouth, Snowdonia National Park, Whitby and Perranporth. I want to show the beautiful destinations within the UK. Created in a bold, graphic and colourful style using Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Astropad, iPad Pro, and hand made Mono Print textures
  • Christmas Tree Farm - Graphic Print
    Christmas is fast approaching, and whilst on my annual trip to our local Christmas Tree Farm I was inspired to create this illustration, a graphic print of a couple choosing their Christmas Tree! Created in a bold, graphic and colourful style using Procreate, iPad Pro, and hand made Mono Print textures
  • Summer Love : Graphic Print
    An illustrated graphic print, created digitally incorporating traditional hand-made print textures. Working digitally with Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator and my Wacom, allows me to work with bold shapes and bright colours, but my print work adds depth and an imperfect feel. A summer inspired print!
  • Liberty London - Rapeseed Oil Packaging
    I was commissioned to illustrate these labels for Liberty London’s new range of hand crafted rapeseed oils by Broighter Gold Rapeseed Oil. Each design focuses on elements of their farm in Limavady, Northern Ireland. Illustration created with bold colours, graphic shapes and rich textures - created digitally using traditional textures.
