I have gained a BA in Digital Media Design from the University of Brighton focusing on digital illustration and 2D animation and using my new amazing powers, I’m throwing myself into a couple of arty communities and projects as well as taking on commissions of varying types.


I’m currently taking on commissions for various performance artists in Brighton, as well as producing items for sale at Brightons art and craft shows, including prints, nesting dolls, Ouija boards, greeting cards and badges.
