I am a London based illustrator and designer. I create intricate illustrations, which playfully capture the essence of everyday objects or flora and fauna. Each illustration begins with a hand or digital drawing, enhanced with watercolour techniques, and frequently brought together in creative compositions.
I have been making and creating since childhood and graduated from Winchester School of Art in 2008 with a specialist degree in Textile Art. In 2016 after a shock diagnosis of Ulcerative Colitis, an incurable bowel disease, I took a step back from the high-stress corporate world and reconnected with my creative passions as a form of therapy. I feel very pleased that drawing has become my profession and I can finally spend time exploring my creativity.
In 2017 I launched my first hugely successful print The Cutlery Draw taken from my original drawings. From there I have developed a whole collection of limited-edition prints and completed numerous private commissions. In 2019 I transferred my illustrations onto a range of quality homeware manufactured entirely in the UK, which include my very popular tea towels.
I chose to use British manufacturers to produce all of my products and packaging. I like to support small and local creatives wherever possible and keep the carbon footprint of my products as low as possible.
Today you can browse and purchase my artwork and homeware here and in independent shops within the UK. Get in touch if you would like to discuss a possible commission or collaboration or are interested in wholesaling my work.
