I’m a content editor and illustrator intrigued by people, places and social movements. As a member of the urban sketcher community I use a variety of art mediums, primarily ink and water colour, to interpret what I see in everyday life.

My work as an illustrator has always run alongside my career in journalism and content design. As a content editor I design and improve content to meet the needs of users. I also work with different teams where I create content improvement plans and advise stakeholders, such as community organisations, on user led written content to reach their audiences effectively.

I also run art engagement workshops through Pepper Art Co. where communities create art that reflects their ideas and creativity. It is a great opportunity to experiment with different mediums and materials.
