This years MBFWA resort collections inspired me to try and a new style of sketching, and once I started I fell down a bit of an illustration rabbit hole! These illustrations are a mix of watercolour, Ink pen and coloured markersRead More
I recently had a big mind "spring clean" and unburdened myself of a lot of goals and thoughts that just weren't relevant anymore and it felt as if I let out a breath I didn't realise I was holding. I wanted to share the idea of a mind clear-out in the hopes it might help someone else get back on track. We are constantly bombarded with inspirational quotes about chasing your dreams and I think we all need to hear that it's Okay to change your mind, its okay to change your dreams.Read More
My art is very much a reaction to the world around me, it's always been a way to balance my mind, creating an internal equilibrium and proving to myself that good things still exist, we just need to focus in on them (or even better; create them ourselves.) So this latest project is my reaction to everything I spoke about in Part one and a way of literally taking the bad news and turning it into something positive, of saying that if we look for the beauty and joy in life we can find it...Read More

It seems today we are constantly bombarded with bad news & negativity, horrifying events replayed again and again for shock value and ratings. The sad truth is that the state of the world won't change overnight. Theres no magical switch we can flip, no Harry Potter potion, but I've found there are ways to counter-act all that negativity and I wanted to share my methods.Read More
Our feet were barely back on British Soil this month when I got the call to spend 5 days at blogger haven "The Apartment" live illustrating London's fashion influencers.
What a whirlwind of a week, meeting and sketching such a lovely group of people all within the excitement and buzz of the new collections for Spring/Summer 2018.
I was recently lucky enough to work on an artist collaboration with luxury handbag brand X NIHILO. This was definitely one of those projects that seemed a little more play than work, and as I actually began my career in Fashion design, merging illustration and Fashion has always been a happy place for me (Plus working with passionate and creative brands is a huge drawcard)...Read More
The Met Gala is one of Fashion's biggest nights out and something to mark on the calendar if you derive any pleasure in fashion, celebrity or art. It takes place annually in New York as a charity ball for the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute. Each year the theme of the current costume exhibit is carried into the dress code for the Met Gala and usually results in some memory making ensembles.
This year's exhibit was honouring Comme des Garçons designer Rei Kawakubo, entitled “Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between.”
This crumpled string of words, colour and sky is a work of heart. A culmination of ideas and inspiration that have been swirling in my head, and it is such a wonderful feeling to have painted them into existence.
As with every new illustration all it takes is a flicker of inspiration to set my mind off. However this flicker of words and images came at a time where I wasn't feeling particularly motivated or creative. You see I had let my self come down with a case of "Comparisonitis". The seriously infectious condition which makes you compare yourself to others and whose symptoms can include; a feeling of inadequacy, artist block, tears and even tantrums.
