My creative process involves manipulating photographs, using all sorts of materials and media, always trying new things to develop diverse and unusual textures and atmospheres. The programs I use to bring these varying elements together are Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator.

Area Covered: Rugby, Loughborough, London
Work Experience Summary:
Client: Universal Language Publishing. Project Title: The Shining City on the Hill book cover illustration Date: April 2012.
Client: Rugby Theatre. Project Title: Sailor Beware! Poster Date: Nov 2010 • Jan 2011.
I was asked by the Promotions Team at Rugby Theatre to design a poster for their future Sailor Beware! production. The job required me to design three different versions in different sizes and formats, print-ready to promote the play to the target audience. I have now begun the development work for the play's programme design.
Client: Sarah Soal. Project Title: The Rise of Pirates Alley. Date: Sept 2010 • Oct 2010.
Throughout September I produced 10 illustrations for a documentary based on the history of Somalia. I found this to be a very interesting project as it involved researching a subject I originally knew little about. The experience taught me that I can work well and enjoy working out of my comfort zone and that I feel great about learning new things while working. The documentary can be found on facebook when searching 'Pirates Alley'.
Throughout my last few years of my degree I completed a variety of live illustration competition briefs including book covers, posters, short animations and more!
