I am an illustrator and writer based in Bristol, UK. In my illustrations I use drawing, painting and printmaking to tell stories about people and places.

I’m inspired by the rural and coastal landscapes where I grew up, as well as by ordinary-everyday scenes in the city where I live.  Literature, and the practice of storytelling and writing also play a big part in my work.

In 2018-19 I was awarded a SPS/UWE Printmaking scholarship by Spike Print Studio and the University of the West of England to develop my printmaking practice.
