I’m a London based illustrator who loves observing human behaviour and interaction. Having originally studied Illustration in Falmouth, Cornwall, I then joined the Cambridge Children’s Book Illustration MA several years later to refresh my creative practice. This course has encouraged me to reconnect with the world through looking and drawing much more extensively, allowing me to record the humour, joy and small details of life in a more observed way. I love getting outside to draw around London, in parks, cafes, museums and train stations – anywhere where I can watch people without being overlooked! I am now completely reliant on my sketchbooks which house a library of ideas and often provide the basis of my work. Experimenting with traditional printmaking techniques has also been key in helping to establish my own way of digitally combining line, colour and pattern.
