I use a range of mediums to create colourful children’s books, novelty books and hand-made toys, inspired by animals and my childhood in rural Wales.
The Rotating Menagerie is a novelty book depicting animals in their habitats, inspired by traditional carousel rides. The book flips in on itself to reveal new animals each time for the viewer to discover.
Made from coloured paper, acetate, coloured pencils, cardboard, and glue. The cover was embroidered onto fabric I dyed myself.
Madam and the Chicken Circus
Madam and the Chicken circus is a children’s book about a dog, Madam, who has always dreamed of joining a circus. After discovering the Chicken Circus, the chickens help her discover her place within the circus. Along with the book, I have made a crochet Madam toy.
The artwork is made up of scanned sketches and textures and assembled digitally.
The Private lives of the Pharaohs
A collection of Editorial Illustrations based on the Channel 4 Documentary, Private Lives of the Pharaohs. The documentary follows the DNA Analysis of the Pharaohs, the building of the Pyramids and the use of the Blue Lotus in ancient Egypt. These three concepts are reflected in the three smaller illustrations and have been combined in the main image.
Digitally drawn using Photoshop.
An illustrated memoir of memories that made my childhood so special. Each item in this illustration reflects an aspect of my life that I have been lucky to experience. I wouldn’t be the person or artist I am without the elements in this illustration.
The illustration is made up of a collage of paper, pencil and ink
