I tried admirably hard to get a real job, but my true talents have only ever been in drawing and writing. So, I gave up on my dream of becoming a proper adult and became a freelance writer and illustrator instead. Most days, I illustrate digitally or with ink and, as it turns out, that's also how I write. I am armed with a BA (Professional Writing and Publishing), more sketchbooks than sense, and an obsession with bringing stories to life.
The past year was consumed by a personal project to reimagine and illustrate the 78 cards of a tarot deck. Card by card, the Blind Tarot has subtly shifted my illustrative style and approach, and allowed me to practice capturing complex emotional concepts as striking visuals.
Concurrently, and with two small humans underfoot, I have found the time to complete my Bachelor of Arts. I started my degree with the intention to work in editing but, as always, the siren song of writing was hard to resist. I have succumbed and now juggle my time between illustration and writing blogs, articles and other web content about lifestyle and social issues.
