I’ve always loved art & design, and have been making and collecting since I was little. When I went to university I started out studying Art History but switched to Graphic Design when I realised I wanted to be on the ‘hands on’ side of things. While I was studying Graphic Design I found my love for illustration with a the help of a couple of great tutors. I ended up specialising in illustration specifically for fabric design, as well as getting the contract to illustrate the children’s book ‘A Dog Like That’ at the end of my final year. The fabrics I’d created at uni got a bit of interest so I started selling those at markets and on etsy while working as a mac op making ads for APN newspapers, and then I moved on to create art prints. That was about 6 years ago now.
