I’m a illustrator and writer whose work primarily revolves around themes of queerness and identity.
I like to work in various mediums including: printmaking (lino, neoprene foam relief print, tetrapak intaglio), coloured pencils, copic markers and various 3-D work including needlefelt, puppets and clay sculpting.
I love to draw people and my work is very exaggerated in terms of both colour and facial features. My writing primarily focuses on specific characters, and a plot builds from there. This feeds into my narrative illustration work.
I have run multiple workshops for the University Illustration team and am going to participate in a panel on graphic novels hosted by Paul Gravett at the CMYK Print Fair, 2020.
