I was awarded a First Class BA Hons for my degree in Illustration. I can lead in depth research projects and support enquiiries and writing with theoretical underpinning. I can effectively communicate characters, concepts and narratives through visual imagery and quality of aesthetics with a visual language that references culture, art movements and eras, applying and experimenting with these methodologies in a range of mediums and contexts such as film and Theatre.
