About me

I'm an illustrator and printmaker currently based in Luxembourg. I create everything from editorial illustrations to marketing design and love working with Procreate, Indesign, Photoshop and Illustrator. I am particularly interested in creating feminist, LGBTQ+, eco-conscious illustrations, and anything that is cute and colourful.
