‘I am currently living and working in London after graduating with a First Class degree in Graphic Design in 2013. I work as a graphic designer for a fashion retail company and do my own work in the evenings and at weekends.
My work is a combination of hand-rendered typography, bright bold patterns and illustration paired with playful composition, vivid colour and a touch of humour. Some of my pieces are produced digitally although I work mostly by hand – and then tidy up the illustration using the computer, maybe adding some different colour and texture. I really love so many different mediums such as mixed media, painting and print making – all of which I am keen to continue exploring.’
‘It’s challenging to balance a full-time job and continue to work in the evenings, but I’m really enjoying developing my own products. In the future I would really like to have my own studio space, to establish myself as a freelance illustrator and surface pattern designer and be able to work for myself. I’m already planning and scribbling down ideas for my next ranges and can’t wait to get started.’
