Illustrator and Designer
I am a self-taught illustrator and designer living in Greater London and working from my home studio. After over 12 years working in TV and archives, I am following my dreams to become a full time illustrator and designer.
I enjoy working both traditionally and digitally. I work mostly in Adobe Photoshop and Procreate, and use Affinity Designer for design and vector work. I love the creative freedom that comes from drawing digitally, allowing me to experiment and grow.
My signature style is still evolving as I love to experiment with techniques, and colour palettes, but I definitely favour working with textures to achieve a hand drawn look in digital drawings. You will probably also notice my favoured colour palette, which combines a lot of pink and teal green!
I have worked on many personal commissions, and dream of seeing my work sitting on the shelves in stores, or accompanying a magazine article. I am available for freelance work, so if you like what I do, and would like to work with me, please email me.
I'd love to share more work with you, so come and follow me on Instagram for doodles, sneak peeks and current artwork.
I grew up in the suburbs of London, and have always love to draw, paint, or doodle on any surface available to me. I have tried my hand at various crafts over the years, some of which I found I was better at than others! Let's just say that cake decorating is not one of my strengths!
I studied Art up to A Level and then Sociology at University in Leicester, After Uni, I began a career in Television, starting as a runner, working in an art department, buying and making props, and have settled in the Archive of a large Broadcaster in the UK, where I have been working for over 12 years.
In 2013 me and my husband started our family. It was during my second maternity leave that my creative urges really took hold and have helped me turn what was once a hobby, into a career and propelled me into becoming what I have always been in my heart– a designer and illustrator!
I currently work part time in the archive, allowing me to spend these special early years with my babies, but also the time to build my portfolio and learn the digital tools I need for this career. I currently work out of my home studio in Greater London.
I am ready to share my art with you all and hope that you find inspiration in it.
One thing that is important to me is taking care of our planet and ensuring that any products I put out into the world are created in a way that is as sustainable and eco-friendly as possible, You can read about the steps I am taking here.
