I’ve been working in illustration for over 5 years – starting my career creating live illustrations during London Fashion Week for fashion publications, now continuing to work as fashion illustrator capturing both Menswear and Womenswear across Europe. After being trained in animation and moving image, I’ve experimented with how it can enable my work to develop within new formats and placements (focusing predominately in digital).
With the regrowth of craft, live artwork offers an opportunity to give a unique experience of being present as the artwork is created. Whether that be in the form of live portraits, style illustrations, window illustration or large scale murals. An individual and exclusive addition to your event – offering a branded, often cherished memory for your guests.
Within my experience as a live illustrator I’ve worked across London for Swarovski as a live portrait artist for their Press day with The Communications Store, store launches at Harrods and Covent Garden, Christmas light switch on at National History Museum and their Swarovski Head Office Christmas party.
Later going on to work with – Moynat in store creating live fashion illustrations and portraits at their private client events and Westfield London for the launch of Beauty Unbound amongst others clients. Further services I offer also include creation of live personalised products/packaging.
I’ve explored working on a larger scale, creating large scale murals and hand drawn window displays for clients, recently creating a 4 month installation celebrating East London’s creative scene for Truman Brewery spanning 10m x 10m windows.

Trained in stop-motion animation, I produce illustrated GIFs, animated video, collaborative video/illustration campaigns and am constantly exploring further avenues for illustrated moving image. As moving image continues to go from strength to strength in the digital sector, with studies from Cisco claiming by 2019, 80% of the World’s Internet Traffic will be video now is the time to invest in the future.
