I am a half-English, half-American artist from the UK.
I graduated from Cambridge School of Art with an MA in Children’s Book Illustration in 2018. Before coming to Cambridge I read English at Exeter, where I became particularly interested in critical theory such as feminist and postcolonial studies.
I enjoy working both digitally and traditionally and like finding new ways to combine the two. I am particularly inspired by screenprinting and risograph as I love the textures, and I like to experiment with arranging painted layers digitally to create a loose feel. I love to paint from observation with gouache and work coloured pencil on top. I want to keep experimenting with colour, texture and shape, to find new and exciting ways to create characters.
My interests include animals, fairy tales and the natural world. I also like space, the internet, fashion and people watching. I am most inspired by fantasy, and stories about love and friendship. I have two cats, and at one point I owned twelve guinea pigs.
