BA (Hons) Illustration
I am an illustrator interested in storytelling and creating connections with an audience to intangible cultural heritage and folklore through my creative voice. I enjoy creating work fuelled by research, and problem solving through process, that materialises as drawing with character and fluidity. I want to situate my work within editorial and publishing contexts and, through creating a range of longer book projects and projects with an editorial focus and quicker turnarounds, I have gained experience applying my work to these forms.
The range of projects I have completed are all linked to heritage, folklore, and stories, but each are aimed at engaging different audiences. Through exploring and researching a range of themes from craft and queer ecology to Finnish folk magic and contemporary fiction I was able to develop the ways I translate stories to image.
