‘Throughout my time at uni I’ve tried loads of different areas including set and costume design, paper engineering, picture book illustration and packaging design. It took a while to really settle on the right style and context for my work, but now I typically aimed at the children’s market. I’ve developed quite a loose, sketchy style of drawing, using a combination of pencil crayon, pastel, watercolour and Photoshop.’

‘This year, a lot of my work has been based around the theme of conservation. One of my recent projects was designing the packaging for a sustainable food company called “Roots” which helped to educate children about endangered species and responsible sourcing. At the moment I’m working on a children’s picture book called “The Thing with No Name” which is a story following a girl called Martha and a strange little creature she finds as they try to find his home, and come across many animals whose homes have been affected by humans.’
