About me
I am a hybrid creative who specialises in illustrating and writing, often within the vein of comedy. I run a small illustration business Oodles & Doodles where I sell postcards and prints. I am in the process of founding a theatre production company Wig Studios which will be producing a musical comedy show in March 2021 which I have written, composed and will be directing. I have illustrated and contributed writing for a number of online platforms.
