Skill

Illustration

Having graduated with a First in  BA (Hons) in General Illustration in 2012, I have been involved in a number of projects, varying from one of commissions to complete Childrens Picture books. My passion for my practice is what fires me into the next book, the limitless boundries to let my imagination do what it does best...create!

Skill

Advanced Photoshop

Capable of using a variety of photoshop programmes, from those finishing touches to a flat out array of images.

Iponymous Publishing

Location:

Swansea

A brilliant experience, one of my first ever times working with a publisher. The publisher himself, Mr Tim Prosser intially came to the university in sure of a young illustrator to join him on his quest to publish some books. Along with a batch of other whizz kid artists from my course we went in a pencil to pencil in competition to see who could win the price of Illustrating their first book "Mr Tomkins and the London Cat". After days of panic , nerves and sleepless nights I finally got my chance to give the book my twist. Since then we have produced three epidsodes of Mr Tomkins and a second series called "Magic Piano".
