BA (Hons) Illustration
My entire practice is underpinned by handmade processes, sequential design and education. Inspired by my fascination with the natural world and particularly ornithology, I aim for my illustration work to educate all audiences on these species and to incentivise engagement with the natural world.
Working with the Broads Authority during my second year of university gave me an opportunity to create a unique booklet which aimed to teach children about introduced species. This allowed me to explore collaboration in a new way, where I enjoyed identifying relevant areas to their organisation which I felt my target audience may need more resources on.
During my final year at university, I conducted a research report about the decline in people’s connections with nature, exploring how illustration can help to nurture this important connection. I have since used this research as a basis throughout my practice, ensuring that my work has an impact in all the ways I want it to.
