Hi there

About me

No matter what’s happening in life, art and design always see me through even the hardest times. Creativity is like therapy, a safe place to go when you need to immerse and express yourself. I was always into creating art and making stuff as a kid so to be able to share my work with others is a dream come true. What makes it even better is the amazing creative community online and the ability to reach out to people all around the world.

I’m currently based in the UK with my fiancé and our wonderful bunny Quin (this is not a euphemism for a person—he is literally an adorable little harlequin rabbit). I completed a Master’s degree in Graphic Design at the University of Hertfordshire from 2018-2020 while working full-time and growing my freelance business, so I’m no stranger to long hours and hard work. But I love it!

I also love it when people reach out and let me know what they want to see from my artwork and designs. Feel free to ask questions, make suggestions, or just come and say hello to me on social media:

Companies featuring my artwork

Who I've Worked With

Paper Culture are a sustainable greeting card company based in the U.S. Their ethos is to protect the planet and with every card that is sold they plant a tree. I designed birth announcement illustrations for them in 2020.

Gaming

I'm an avid gamer and have been playing games since I was 10 years old (when my parents got me a Nintendo for Christmas one year). My platforms of choice are PC and Playstation, and I mainly play MMOs and first person adventure games. For the past six years I've been obsessed with The Elder Scrolls Online. I've also been known to dabble in some horror games (Resident Evil).

Writing

I wrote my first short story when I was 15 and showed it to one of my teachers at school. She liked it and asked if I'd written any more. That was all the encouragement I needed! Years later, I had a handful of my fiction published, but due to my busy work life (day job and running my creative biz on the side) I no longer have time to write. It will always be a special hobby that I cherish.

Reading

Reading as a child and throughout my life has contributed massively to my creative side, and I value books and knowledge more than most things. Thankfully nowadays we have easy access to audiobooks, so even when I'm working and too busy to sit down with a book, I can still listen to them. I love both fiction and non-fiction - depending on my mood.
