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!

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!)
Something I’ve been working on and experimenting with a new style and way of colouring. Also I uploaded before the end of November so it still counts as Autumn!
I have been volunteering with a company called You Press over the summer to help create a website called ScribersHive. A place that gives young people (or anybody!) a voice and a place to express their opinions or creativity. I helped create posters promoting the website’s release, the logos for the podcast “Hidden Voices” and the “Comics” section – which I also have created a comic for inspired by one of the articles.

Thank you very much!
There was a problem with uploading this last month but here you are and it includes a plus one where I celebrated the first day of Autumn!
I would like to update you on what I’ve been doing for the past few months of 2017. As well as doing personal ventures, I have been illustrating 2 books – working on the sequel to ‘Superstar Kids’ and a new title called ‘The Adventurers’. I have been volunteering as an Artist at Paddington Arts, a local youth centre which I have been going to since I was a child so I am very happy to be giving back to them! AND a collaboration painting with Annette Fernando, this was for the 24 Hearts project in tribute for Grenfell Tower and in time for Carnival.
I have definitely been the busy bee, have a look below to find some of the recently finished pieces. I am very proud of what I have achieved so far, to see progression in my art style and way of working is very satisfying and I aim to keep this up!
