Overview

My illustration portfolio has 2 main styles. These are a vibrant watercolour style, with a free and expressive feel, and a bold vector based style which is very clean and clear.

I have produced illustrations for fashion magazines, for packaging artwork, and for websites. These have varied from small graphics to full cover illustration. I have also produced illustration for educational purposes, such as infographics.

I love drawing city street scenes, and fashion and lifestyle illustrations. I would jump on any opportunity to illustrate for a travel/journalism book.

I started my digital illustration to add to my skills in realistic portraiture, eye-catching infographics, and imaginative character design.

I have developed this style further to cover more abstract themes which focus on capturing an idea and creating a pleasing composition. I would like to use these skills to represent ideas for instance in poetry and psychology.
