About me
Predominantly specialising in Human Sciences, I work in collaboration with individual health experts, broader health and design agencies and well-being publishers to create effective visual content; using illustration as an engaging communicative device to explain complex subjects. I have worked with a number of health and design agencies, working to develop both their In-house visual indentity and their extended clients’ projects where I have used illustration in website design, research reports and app designs. I have created 7 'graphic medicine' novels on topics such as Pain, Trauma, Autism, Anxiety, Forgiveness, Dementia, Touch and Gender. Anxiety is Really Strange and Pain is Really Strange are part of The Reading Well Scheme which allows people to loan the books in every library in England.
