I am a self taught illustrator and designer based in Worthing.
Originally from the Welsh borders, I spent much of my childhood adventuring around farmyards and forests which fed my imagination very well indeed!
My portfolio includes hand drawn maps, mischievous puns, colourful alphabets and curious characters, produced for clients such as children’s publishers, museums, national parks and charities. My process combines the hand drawn with the digital, featuring bold colours, hand made textures and wobbly lines full of warmth and character. Much of my inspiration comes from the natural world, people watching and mid century design.
In 2013 I was awarded a summer artist residency with Kultivera in Tranås, Sweden, and since then have worked freelance as an illustrator and arts educator. Alongside my commissioned and personal projects and exhibitions, I produce my own collections of playful illustrated gifts.
