I'm a Children's Book and Narrative Illustrator from the Midland's UK. I love to create work that explores emotion and human connection, observing the big and little things in life. I predominately work in pencil crayon and photoshop to create dynamic compositions and layouts.
I am a graduate from the MA Children's Book Illustration course from Cambridge School of Art.
