At the heart of everything I do is a love of visual problem solving. But there are definitely two sides to my work. On one hand, I do art direction, research, concepts and brand strategy. On the other, I do illustration, workshops and teaching.
My biggest passion is exploring new spaces for illustration to be experienced in, and identifying new opportunities for illustrators to work in the wider creative industry as thinkers not just image-makers. My It's Nice That article last year introduces my thinking on this!
I graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2011 with a MA in Communication Art & Design after graduating from Kingston University with a First Class Honours Degree in Illustration in 2009.
