Illustration BDes (Hons)

My work is a mix of creating both digitally and traditionally with a love of creating interesting textures and depths.

About

I enjoy working both traditionally and digitally, however this year I took advantage of practising my digital skills to prepare me for beyond university. I take a lot of my ideas quite literally and love to illustrate stories that take the viewer on a journey through my drawings. I try not to limit myself to one style so that I can freely create anything I am challenged with.

My main inspirations come from nature, mythology, video games and warm, cosy feelings. I have enjoyed a variety of challenges in my fourth year, from editorial illustration to drawing and writing my own children's book. My time at DJCAD has been challenging, but I have managed to find a way to create things that make me happy. I hope others can find happiness in my drawings too!

Ursa's Star - Childrens book

An illustrated spread of space, with stars, stardust, and various constellation animals. Words read: “Say hello to Leo Lion, Capricornus Goat, Lepus hare, Corvus Crow and Ursa Bear. The animals can only come out when night time comes, where they love to laugh and play all night long.

The charming story of a constellation bear on an adventure to find his lost star.
