I'm an award winning freelance illustrator from the UK. My clients include WIRED, Financial Times, Time Out (HK), Arts Council England, Cedar Design Agency, XXI, British Medical Journal, Joseph Rowntree Foundation, Perth Festival of the Arts, Scottish Fisheries Museum and more.

I graduated from Edinburgh College of Art with a First Class Honours in Illustration. I continued to work as a part time Illustration and Life Drawing tutor at ECA, Edinburgh Contemporary Crafts and Edinburgh University Art's Society until 2013. I was Artist in Residence at Edinburgh College of Art (2013) and Lingnan University (2014).

A few years ago made a self authored graphic novel titled Returning Home, based on mixed race heritage and what is meant by 'home'. This projects was supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
