BA (Hons) Illustration
I specialise in narrative illustration and comics; historical settings and the natural world act as constant inspiration for my work. I love to explore introspective, character-driven stories. For my final project, I created ‘Before They Lay You Down’, a passion project Western about found family and atonement. Going forward, I plan to keep telling stories set in times gone by. As a narrative illustrator, I aim to create atmospheres and worlds viewers feel they can step into. Through colour and thoughtfully used detail, I aim to create a feeling of nostalgia in my settings, and historical photography often informs character designs to ground them.
Through my degree, I have learned how to work digitally, and this has become my preferred method of making comics; however, my practice is still very much informed by my history as a traditional artist and painter. My love for organic textures and colours plays an important role in my current practice.
