Overview

I work part time in a local design agency, spending the rest of my time freelancing, getting the best of both freelance and in-house worlds. I love to have the freedom to get creative with my freelance work, putting my style and touch onto designs that could otherwise be a bit boring! I have had the pleasure of working with Book of My Life, designing the book covers for some lovely biographies.

My work is playful but formal, I enjoy using software to create designs but see the advantages in hand drawn/created designs as well as photography, I feel a combination can create more interesting work.
