About me

My work focuses on storytelling.

Character, narrative, and fictional worlds drive the imagery I produce.

I use line to create as much depth, detail, and dimensionality in my work as possible. Crafting storied and inspired visuals.

Mark-making, sharp angular shapes and layered texture are some of the defining aspects of my work.

My artwork is also characterised by a blend of traditional and digital techniques, using line work rendered with dip or brush pen, with colour and texture being added using digital methods. Sometimes using traditional colouring methods to create additional depth and texture.

I have taken part in numerous competitions including Penguin Student Design Awards, D&AD New Blood, Secret 7” and The Macmillan Prize.

Additionally, I have had the chance to create and sell my work in the Harris Museum via a university pop-up shop. Selling work such as prints, notebooks and tote bags with my own screen-printed designs.

This collection of my work gives a representation of the projects and areas I have covered during my 3rd and final year at university. It shows examples of more generalised industry/design focused brief work, alongside more narrative driven self-publishing, graphic novel, and artist’s book centric projects. With this collection of work, I want to give the viewer an idea of the playful and character focused manner in which I approach my work, and most of all, my passion to tell stories for others to enjoy.
