Brief Summary
Hello! I graduated from Middlesex University where I studied both Art Foundation and BA (hons) Illustration. At the moment, I am working as a freelance illustrator based in London. My work has developed from a combination of traditional painting/printing techniques and blending it with digital photography and graphic software. I love switching between two or more different work processes and watching the worlds and the characters I create develop with each new step. The streets of London have inspired my most recent work.

I strongly believe in delivering professionalism, diversity of image making and understanding the importance to work to deadlines. My commercial work includes creating poster & menu designs for ‘Water Margin’ in The O2 Arena (Greenwich) and t-shirt designs for the British Institute for Chinese Martial Arts.
