I utilise digital as well as traditional techniques in my work, producing images that combine flat, collaged shape with hand-drawn lines and typography. Throughout my degree, I have touched on a broad variety of topics, from biblical stories to contemporary drag culture. I have a particular interest in paper engineering, and enjoy experimenting with illustrative work that is tactile and interactive, as well as traditional 2D image-making.

During my final year, I have created¬†two picture books. “A Hive of Activity” is an interactive book about honeybee workers and “Home Sweet Home” is a pop-up book based on the keyword, ‘habitat’. I was also one of three winners in a competition run by Cambridge Edition magazine, who have since published my artwork on the front cover of their June issue.
