About me: I’m a freelance illustrator based in London and I’m highly creative, enthusiastic and an organised individ-

ual. My passion and curiosity for art and design is what inspires me to produce original and unique work. I have gained and developed skills and knowledge to visually communicate ideas through my time at university. Since graduating, I’ve been taking on commissions and I’ve worked with various people along the way. To develop my career, I’m looking to broaden my skills and experience as well being able to work with people who share a passion for creativity and design.
