BA (Hons) Illustration
My practice centres around themes of queer identity and trans experiences, illustrated in a playful and accessible style, inspired by own lived experiences and the lack representation myself and my peers saw while growing up. I created “TRANS FORM” as a piece that people aged 13+ can enjoy as this is often when representation is most needed; the book was made to show that the community has always existed and that trans people can thrive in all areas of life.
I am passionate about self-publishing and narrative design, intend to continue to use these to tell LGBTQ+ stories after graduation, and aim to collaborate with other creators and companies who have a similar mission. I have been selling my illustrated work for two years which has already developed my confidence when working independently, meeting deadlines for clients, and given me an opportunity to create my own style of working.
