This leafy double page spread and accompanying background spread were created for a beautiful story by Maya Kalev in Popshot's 'Growth' issue.
It was a great to explore the limited but leafy palette in creating these sultry editorial pieces.

It was an honour to be featured in Laura Nevill's Lets Do London Better campaign.
This campaign showcased a curated selection of illustrators work, across the large screens at Westfields in London, sharing messages of positivity and inclusion. My own 'Thank You NHS' was featured as part of this project and was definitely the biggest I've seen my work to date!

This series was created as an editorial piece, inspired by everyone's time at home during lockdown. As people adjusted to this unprecedented moment, some found new hobbies, others took the time to look after themselves and others were still doing vital work. This series looks at the singular home location, when we weren't able to travel and what this could mean as some enjoyed this time and others felt restricted by it.
Bird And Blend
This was a gorgeous commission from one of my favourite tea shops, Bird & Blend. As part of their monthly tea subscriptions, they commission different illustrators to create work inspired by their tea selection and the month its for. This little tea witch was for an October edition and was a great chance to explore some moody colours and dramatic shapes.
During lockdown I also worked with Bird & Blend to create a colouring in page as part of a project with their other illustrators, to be given away for free.
