I am an illustrator and designer based in London fresh out of my masters at Central Saint Martins and recently named as 'one to watch' by Scout.

I am a visiting tutor at Brighton University and write on visual culture - I will have a paper on design, folk art and horror published by Intellect this year. I also run workshops including events at the Victoria & Albert Museum and London Design Festival. I enjoy nature, ancient artefacts and over head projectors.
