I am an illustrator currently based in Wales. My work explores my love of nature and adventure, and is laced with whimsy and charm. I use gouache in a watercolour style, adding texture and details with coloured pencils, and gravitating towards rich, complementary colours.
I enjoy creating narrative illustrations and decorative illustrations in equal measure. Telling stories with artwork has always been something that I am passionate about, but only recently I discovered my love of applying my illustrations to items that will be admired everyday. I also love incorporating hand drawn typography into my illustrations.
I grew up on the south coast of England, surrounded by creativity, and was always drawing and making. I knew from an early age that I wanted to make a living from my artwork, and was naturally drawn to illustration through my fascination with picture books. In 2011 I embarked on the BA(Hons) Illustration degree at the University of Gloucestershire, where I spent many hours drawing, learning, growing creatively, and eventually I emerged with a First Class degree. In my spare time I knit, bake, sew, explore the world and read literature or detective novels.
Please don't hesitate to get in touch for commissions or queries, I will always try to help if I can!
