🎉 2023 has started off with a big change for me as I am committing to developing my art career. Four days a week I will be learning, making and exploring my practice, which I want to share here!

🌿 After graduating in 2020, I was fortunate that my student job hired me full time which supported me during the pandemic. If you are in Bristol, please support @riversidegardencentre - they are an amazing local company and social enterprise with some fab plants too! I owe them a lot and so glad that I still get to work with them, continuing to run their social media and other creative endeavors.

🎨 Now, I am super excited to be able to dedicate my time to improve my skills in various areas (model/puppet making, illustration, moving art, animation...) and pursue what I love!

😁 I hope you enjoy following me over my journey and thank you to everyone who has supported me thus far!

Hi! Thankyou for visiting my website! Just wanted a little update on what I've been up to...

So, main thing, I recently graduated from UWE Illustration with a first class honour which I am very excited about! I had a wonderful 3 years on the course and learnt so much about my visual language and technical skills.

With graduating, I have also moved house. I have decided to stay in Bristol, a city which I love and look forward into taking part in the variety of art events.

Due to these uncertain times, I am concentrating on working at the moment. I am very fortunate to work with the amazing people at Riverside Garden Centre & Café, who have supported me hugely throughout my student years. Since reopening, I have been helping out with general admin and social media for the garden centre (@riversidegardencentre), as well as continuing in the café.

Nevertheless, I haven't stopped planning and making for ongoing illustration projects! As I finished my degree during lockdown, I am working on refining a few images from this as well as a few new projects in varying stages of development. I am working on getting these projects posted on my social medias as well as on my website.

Final thing, I have been made aware my newsletter link is having issues, so please email me directly ( if you wish to keep updated with my work. I'd love to hear from you!
