Illustration

In 2010 I completed my BA in Illustration with a first class honours degree.

I chose to study illustration at degree level, as out of all the choices I had I felt that this gave me the most flexibility. Throughout the course I was able to undertake electives in a wide range of topics including photography, art history, children's book illustration and advanced life drawing.

 

My dissertation work focussed on the lives of the Vienna Secessionist's, their complex relationships within their domestic and working careers and the subsequent narrative within their figurative studies.

 

The following work contains examples of artwork produced over this period and since, created in a wide variety of mediums.
