I am an Illustrator that focuses on nature, print, and people. My art is rooted in accessibility and function; relying on digital and traditional methods to make surface pattern designs for products. I also use graphic design and photography as a means to record and communicate. I make visually engaging images; sketching to produce expressive, informative drawings and use print as a medium, particularly drypoint etching, lino, and collagraph printing. The medium allows experimentation with eco-friendly materials and production methods.
I am self-motivated with an extroverted nature, and can confidently and independently work freelance as well as thrive in a social studio environment and would like to work globally with individuals and companies.
I create designs that celebrate the natural world, with an underlying emphasis on protecting and conserving it. I coordinate and run workshops encouraging the public to become involved in community spaces, particularly gardens that offer an opportunity for educating people on biodiversity and unite communities with a sense of power. I feel an ethical responsibility to make art that has an active role in making the world a more positive and healthier place.
