I am now a fully qualified Arts Facilitator for the Arts Award!
This is a big accomplishment for me, I am now able to run art activities for young people and get them fully accredited with a recognised certification to help further their careers. I definitely have achieved a life long goal of mine and this is only the beginning!
Working with Nics Music UK, I helped create a strategy for the design and promo of his second upcoming EP: Stories for MANDY launch party! I also designed the album artwork for his EP, it can now be preordered on all good music platforms.
I’m really proud of everything we have achieved so far with our collaboration and time has really flown by, the launch party night is going to AMAZING!

Apologies for the lack of posts, I went on holiday to Japan and have come back fuelled with inspiration and more projects in the pipeline. I am also working on a vlog of my trip there so watch this space!
My friend Devina runs her own travel blog website and has started a segment called ‘Fab Friends’ and has interviewed me! You can read it here:
She is beautiful, inspiring and a great role model to look up to. It’s Yara Shahidi!
Beyonce was the first black female artist to headline at Coachella and her performance was AMAZING! I wanted to create an illustration to celebrate such a great moment and appreciate the Queen Bey herself!
You can find a speed painting video of the illustration process here: https://youtu.be/lG2wv2a6c58
I was wandering through the darkness and then followed the light in to a vast garden and grew myself some lavender. That heavenly, calming scent and its purple, ethereal appearance; it was me growing a new home for myself.
I’m planning to animate more and create more illustrative pieces, I have a lot of ideas and projects in the pipeline. I can not wait to show you!
A small and sweet animation I did to commend World Book Day 2018. Reading has become an important part of my life and I now freelance as an illustrator for children’s books! Also an excuse to dress up (but I didn’t today because of the snow!)
The sequel to Superstar Kids is now OUT! I spent this entire year working hard on the illustrations for this book with the goal to make them better than the last, I really feel I have achieved that! I am very proud of myself for publishing my second book and there is other books in the pipeline for next year, so keep an eye out! Onwards and upwards 🙂
