I am an Illustrator and Musician living in the heart of Birmingham, UK.
My life consists of touring with Joe Broughton's Conservatoire Folk Ensemble, Threaded & Riot Quartet around the country and drawing drawing drawing,
Inspired by the world around me, the things I see every day and the people I meet, I have developed my illustrative style to allow me to explore my visual imagination. I use ink and sometimes watercolour as my medium, working with these two simple materials to create colourful worlds and more eccentric abstract ideas.
I commonly work in a loose cartoon style to invoke a range of emotions and create stories or scenes but also love to work with shapes and lines, creating small details to make up a bigger picture using inspirations from nature.
I like to be versatile and experiment with projects that challenge and develop my skills as an artist. I often work on ideas spontaneously leading to the creation of unique characters, moments of humour,mischief and whimsical playfulness.
Currently I am using direct inspirations from the people around me in my new project 'Words We Love'
