I’m a self-taught illustrator and typographer originally from South Africa, now based in England. 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, my commissions are funding my mountain of books. Between portraits, you’ll find me in the library at the University of Oxford. After an undergrad and Masters in history I’m back amongst the dreaming spires studying for a PhD in US History. During my first stint at Oxford, I was the creative director and illustrator of Oxford’s Isis magazine – the UK’s longest-running independent student magazine and the illustrator for the Cherwell newspaper.
If you’d like me to immortalise a loved one (fluffy or otherwise), please get in touch.
