Freelance portrait artist and illustrator


I’m a self-taught illustrator and typographer originally from South Africa, now based in Boston by way of the UK. My favourite things in the world are biros, the beach, and blue skies.


I’ve been drawing for as long as I can remember. The years of doodling pictures as birthday presents for friends morphed, via an Art Foundation at Central Saint Martins, into a freelance illustration business and a ton of side projects.


A year in Cape Town allowed me to spend long mornings in the studio to fund long afternoons on the beach and evenings climbing mountains.


These days, you'll find me drawing out and about around Harvard where I'm also doing a Postdoctoral Fellowship in American History. 


If you’d like me to immortalise a loved one (fluffy or otherwise), please get in touch.
