My interests range from fairy and folk tales to yoga to young adult literature. I enjoy sketching and collage when researching or for experimenting with the layout of an image. I find the immediacy of working with gouache and pencil is most appealing when creating final images. As I originally studied English Literature, books have always been a great passion of mine. Combining this with my love of drawing seemed like a natural progression. Over the course of two and a half years not only the work I produce but my tastes have changed dramatically. Now I feel I have a broader range of preoccupations and a greater visual vocabulary to create the images I envisage.
