‘I have been balancing working part time and freelancing however have recently decided to pursue freelance full time, which I am really excited about. Whilst at university I was encouraged to test media and ideas as much as possible, (as well as having fun whilst doing so!) and this is how I have developed a delicate, handmade approach to illustration.
I am mostly inspired by observing people in everyday scenes and overheard conversations, as well as strong influences from nature and shapes. My illustrations mostly consist of pastel colours, repeat patterns and line work with the added detail of hand embroidery.’
‘Recently I have starting working on initial nature based illustrations which will form a new range of products, to be released later in the year, combining hand embroidery, pattern and line work. At the moment I am also working on a few exhibition submissions and preparing for an event which will soon be announced via my twitter/facebook, lots of exciting things to come!’
