I love being an illustrator and being able to draw & make from inside my little 'creative bubble' brings me great joy ... it's my happy place where thoughts and dreams fuse to make ideas flow. My specialism is working within vector programmes such as Illustrator and I really enjoy putting together unusual colour combinations, creating fun characters and dreaming up lovely lettering layouts.
The Birmingham Institute of Art and Design was my home for 4 years while I was training to be a Graphic Designer & Illustrator. I graduated with a First Class Honours degree and as well as enjoying a period of time teaching drawing to Foundation level students, have also been super fortunate to go on to work with some great clients mainly within the field of publishing such as Harper Collins, Usborne Books, Peaceable Kingdom, Papyrus, Design House Greetings, Target, Hallmark and many more.
Other things that bring me joy are being with my family, eating lemons, chocolate & sushi (but not all at the same time!), drinking tea, design books, hand-drawn lettering, learning new things, travelling to new places when I can and anything fun & quirky.
