My love for comics began from reading Japanese manga books; I’m always inspired by the inky line drawing style of the illustrations. I’ve found that when creating a comic, you need to be able to draw just about anything! Over the years I’ve honed my skills through lots of observational drawing, taking my sketchbook with me wherever I go, capturing real life moments and developing my visual language. I always strive to create visual narratives that are informative, and clearly communicate their meaning. My work is often non-fiction, specialising in the museums and heritage sector.


What topics are you drawn to?
I love illustrating non-fiction topics, the natural world of fossils, plant specimens and foraging mushrooms always interest me. I also really enjoy history & heritage projects, drawing museum artifacts, and telling stories of people from the past.

Where do you find inspiration for characters?
Drawing from observation to capture everyday moments, people, places and conversations in my sketchbooks very often inspire my characters and stories.

What graphic novel influences you?
Recent reads I've been inspired by are The Comic Book guide to Growing Food by Joseph Tychonievich & Liz Anna Kozik, and Alison by Lizzy Stewart. I also love the Scott Pilgrim graphic novels by Bryan Lee O’Malley, and anything by Ashley Robin Franklin.
