I’m a London based illustrator who loves observing human behaviour and interaction. Having originally studied Illustration in Falmouth, Cornwall, I joined the Cambridge MA in Children’s Book Illustration in 2014 to refresh my creative practice. This course has encouraged me to reconnect with the world through looking and drawing much more extensively, allowing me to record the humour, joy and small details of life in a more observed way. I love getting outside to draw in London's parks, cafes, and museums and making note of things that surprise and amuse me. Experimenting with traditional printmaking techniques has also been key in helping to establish my own way of digitally combining line, colour and pattern. 

I finished the MA in February 2017 and was delighted to receive the Sebastian Walker Award for Illustration.
