I'm a freelance illustrator who specialises in children's illustration, but I am capable of working across a wide range of projects. I have previously worked in educational publishing, as well as on picture books, memoirs, portraiture and book cover design. I am able to work traditionally in watercolour, graphite, ink and coloured pencil, or digitally using Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator and Clip Studio Pro/Manga Studio. I am also proficient in Adobe inDesign and offer typesetting services. Please contact me if you have any queries.
