I am a freelance illustrator and cartoonist based in Norwich, UK.

I draw primarily by hand with ink and brush lines, and add colour digitally.


I graduated with a 1st in BA Illustration in Norwich in 2018, and my main passion lies in narrative-based work and comics.

In 2021 my graphic novel "Gristle" was released by ShortBox.

I've worked on all kinds of projects, ranging from book covers, album artwork and merchandise design, to branding illustrations and editorial work. Clients include GQ, BBC, VICE, Little White Lies, Gyre & Gimble, Darkroom Chocolate and more.

Feel free to drop me an email for commissioned work, wholesale or just to chat.
