Growing up I always loved to draw. Thinking career choices when I was 9, I either wanted to own a ‘Mr Whippy’ ice cream van or be a fashion designer. I quickly realised I hated sewing, and really just wanted to draw the girls in pretty dresses.
I studied Graphic Design and Multimedia, and work now as a professional illustrator. My work is heavily influenced by fashion.
I sketch girls. That’s it really. Pretty ones with flowing hair and fabric, and add a splash of watercolour. I like to use a runny black gel pen, or my trusty pacer pencil. Inspiration can strike anywhere so I find I can be quickly creative with my sketch pad, however love to get on the computer and finish my creations digitally.
