I am a freelance illustrator and designer, currently working in the UK.
I graduated from University in 2011, achieving First Class Honours in BA (Hons) Illustration.
Since then I’ve worked freelance for several companies, including Continuum (now Bloomsbury Publishing), Crown House Publishing and Osiris Educational.
I also undertook two work placements in design companies Distraction and Optima Graphic Design Consultants Ltd in 2011 and 2012 respectively.
At Distraction (formally Design by Distraction), I spent a month producing various forms of printed/web media for the Lincoln BIG, Lincoln Theatre Royal and Lincs Inter Connect. I also worked as part of a group pitch for Rutland Water.
My Internship with Optima led to a paid project where I produced a fully illustrated livery for Coletta & Tyson Garden Centre.
Throughout this period, I worked freelance for independent publisher Hawkwood Books, creating a book jacket for “A Boy Arrives,” by Stephen Meek. I designed leaflets, posters and magazine advertisements as part of the promotional work for this and several other publications. Additionally, I was involved in the book launch for 'A Boy Arrives' alongside the University of Lincoln.
My illustrations have appeared in “Pimp Your Lesson” by Isabella Wallace & Leah Kirkman, released in July 2012 by Continuum (now Bloomsbury Publishing), and "Talk-Less Teaching: Practice, Participation and Progress”, published by Crown House in June 2014.
Since 2013, I have worked as a web designer and animator for Primarysite, designing illustrated websites for Primary Schools, and have produced over 40 websites up to date, see my Web Design page for examples.
