illustration of A piece made to accompany an online article for Valentines Day on Aila Magazine's blog. The article was about self-love, healing and wellbeing.
illustration of An observation of how we spend our time outside during the working day.
illustration of A piece in response to some articles and books I read during lockdown about the effects of hormonal contraception. A topic not spoken about enough, particularly when focusing on the negative side effects that impact the every day lives of those who use it.
illustration of Is time alone essential? Are we more or less likely to learn in this time than with others? Or is it a balance of both?
illustration of A more vector-styled piece. This was created in response to some customer reviews on my online shop. I moved away from texture and pencils in this piece and focused more on bold colours, simplicity and pattern.
illustration of A piece glamorising reusable water bottles. Plastic water bottles are still often shown in the media by influential people and definitely need to be demonised more in the UK.
illustration of A piece exploring the downfall of highstreet fashion and the increasing popularity of online shops. Fast fashion is destroying the planet, creating horrific working conditions for garment workers and stealing the work of small artists.
illustration of A human's best friend. One of the best ways of keeping fit whilst working from home is walking the dog.
illustration of A piece in response to #offline48 and the growing trend of spending less time on your phone and more time with nature.
illustration of A portrait of the incredible, multi-talented, Michaela Cole. I often do a lot of realistic portraits on the side of my more illustrative work but rarely combine the two so this is something I'm aiming to experiment more with.

Profile

An illustrator who loves to experiment with bold bright colours with elements of texture, pattern and detail. They generally work in a digital format using a variety of brushes, ranging from realistic styles to simplistic, stylised pieces. Their interests and passions lie with left wing politics, sustainable living and feminism. You will often find them staring at plants, doodling on their iPad or trying to upcycle anything they can get their hands on. Previous work has involved book covers, album covers and editorial work, both online and physical.
