School: School of Critical Studies and Creative Industries
Position: Senior Lecturer, Foundation Studies in Art & Design


I work as a freelance designer and illustrator. Projects have included OOH advertising campaigns, events, brand identity, online content and a variety of publications. My illustration work has also seen me work collaboratively with other illustrators to create large-format artworks via representation from Young Creative Network for clients such as Gap, Beck's, Makers Mark and 580 Group. These projects have allowed me to explore my use of materials in the context of window displays and interior decoration. Alongside this work, I have independently designed and produced a decorative product for the commercial market. Light Up Your Mood light switch stickers explore my interest into the manipulation of materials and the everyday, to create new narratives and sources of communication.
