Freelance Digital Artist | Graphic Novel Illustrator | Greetings Card Designer at Blood Bath Cards
I am a digital artist and I draw in different styles using Krita.
My own line of greetings cards at Blood Bath Cards are simple, colourful drawings with a slightly twisted message. My ongoing personal project is 'behind the scenes at the circus’, capturing tender moments between performances...bears falling in love, delights at the kissing booth, the ringmaster and his vinyl.
For the past year, I've been working on a new graphic novel, Emily Corn™, Discovering Darkness, with writer Page Wooller and Publisher, Markosia. It is a non-binary coming of age tale set against the destruction of Earth and marks the start of an epic new series.
My next project is a collaboration, to create a 2.5D game for release Dec 2021.
I teach drawing classes in Westbury, Wiltshire and during lockdown, I'm making virtual drawing classes which I upload onto my YouTube channel every Friday. I'm currently planning a pop-up initiative to take on an empty shop for local makers to make and sell their work.
