I am currently in my first year, studying for a degree in Illustration at Cardiff School of Art and Design.
In late 2013, in my personal time I completed a portrait project with Holocaust Survivors. It was a privilege to meet such extraordinary people and the project had quite an impact on me.
In Spring 2013 I completed my A levels in Fine Art and Graphic Design, at Hampstead Fine Arts College, London NW3 and in the summer, I loved working as an intern for ‘Dutch Uncle’ – an agency which represents some of the best illustrators in the UK and around the world.
Through 2012 I completed an ambitious project called ‘Sketch a Day’. The idea was to draw someone who was in the news for all 366 days in the year. To do this for an entire year was quite a challenge, but it was a great way to develop my portrait technique and to learn about what was going on the world. The 366th drawing was completed on the BBC Breakfast programme on December 31 2012.
In 2011 I completed a personal project, drawing the faces of 300 students in my school year (which was featured in The Times newspaper on April 13 2011). I also have an interest in architectural illustration and ‘My Street’ features the facades of 30 Edwardian houses in North London.
In 2007 I was the Wagamama Young Artist in Residence at their Wigmore Street branch, London W1 and in 2009 and in 2012 my work was featured by the Society of Architectural Illustrators (SAI). In 2010 I was Joint Runner-Up in The Cartoonists' Association - Young Cartoonist of the Year competition.
