Discovering the Joy of Illustration
I've always been a visual learner and doodler but I started properly committing myself to the craft of illustration in early 2020. Just as the real world started shutting down I found a number of imagined worlds at the end of a (digital) pen.
As you scroll you will see a mixture of rough ideas, work linked to stories I am writing, educational pieces and collaborations/commissions

ILLUSTRATED HAIKUS (IN DEVELOPMENT)
I was interested to see how one might encapsulate
huge emotional experience around micro-aggressions and exclusion, in a smaller number of words- especially when combined with an image.
These are designs created from my learning around bias, and its impacts, through my work and interactions/conversations with a variety of other wonderful humans and perspectives.

Collaborations and Commissions
I've teamed up with poet Gemma Barnett to bring her beautiful words to life on the page
MAIN PORTFOLIO IN MORE DETAIL
I like to work with a variety of aesthetics and stimulus when creating my art.
It is often very emotionally instinctive or inspired by pieces of writing/poetry.
As a collaborator I can work well to specific briefs or be allowed to roam free- I love the creative conversation that surrounds illustration
