Bio:

I am exceptionally creative, which seems the simplest way to describe myself. My areas of focus are design/ creative artworking and editorial. I’m a conceptual designer and problem solver, and I’m at my best when using a combination of my language and design skills. For example, when I design marketing campaigns and brainstorm projects I’m able to storyboard and sketch at the same time as I write copy.

I moved into the Publishing Industry in 2014, while gaining an MA in Creative Writing from Oxford Brookes University (Graduated Oct 2017).

I write fiction in my spare time and I’m especially passionate about applying my storytelling skills to design, branding, marketing and communication. I will happily talk your ear off about hooks, improving structure for maximum engagement, and making sure any story you’re telling hits the hearts of your audience!

I have over 10 years of artworking, design, branding and communications experience. I trained as a 2D animator at Northumbria University for my undergraduate degree. I spent my early career writing feature length scripts and pitch documents for an American film studio, and also working in the animation and film industry as a storyboarder and production designer. I have also worked as a Graphic Designer and in-house Illustrator in the ELT industry.

 

I’ve been a creative freelancer for 10 years and I’m currently based in Oxfordshire. I can be hired as an Illustrator, Story Artist and/or Creative Artworker.

 

I worked in Japan as an Illustrator and Learning Materials Designer for Jibun Mirai, Osaka. (textbooks, apps, TV and Skype lessons)

I also worked as an in-house Graphic Designer for 55Max, London. (Bespoke design, products, books)

Visit a floating shop this summer
Like Howls Moving Castle, this summer I'm turning my narrowboat into a nomadic shop! I'll be roaming the UK canal system selling my unabashedly femme illustrated giftware and prints.

Get on my mailing list for access to the shop's physical & online opening event including a special discount code for you to use both in person and online.

As well as my monthly behind the scenes content and updates from my illustration desk (that I only share by email), you'll also get shop location updates, bonus content and character updates, first product peeks and sample sales, and exclusive discount codes :)
