I’m a writer-illustrator-artist-human from London, Cornwall and Texas.

I graduated Falmouth University with a BA(Hons) in Illustration, worked on a kid’s art show for the BBC and tried my hand at making vegan cupcakes for a living before giving up and deciding to live nowhere. Then I spent three years working in people’s houses, hostels and farms before moving to Houston, Texas, because, like, why not? It’s warm and everyone’s pretty friendly and there’s a tonne of craft beer. You should visit. I’ll show you around.

The illustration work I show here is currently focused on turning my stories into comics and illustrated books and occasional commissions. My artwork is pretty inwardly focused at the moment; I use art making as therapy and a way of understanding All the Things, and I run workshops on using drawing for connection and for kindling trust in the world.

I love nature, art, books, people, places…and I love to write. I’m into over-sharing. This blog is generally where I place things I think about, occasional artworks, etc.

I need to put ‘etc’ so I can put something else up and not feel bad for it.
