About Me

Illustrator living in East London. I believe Illustration is not just about drawing, but is anything visual that communicates a message to an audience. To facilitate my creative skills, I like to work in moving image and photography as well as on the drawing board. I will be regularly updating this blog with my most recent masterpieces!

Lloyds TSB Art of nurture competition

My entry to the Lloyds TSB Art of nurture competition 2011. Last year I was a regional finalist so keeping fingers crossed for this year!

I chose the theme ‘We succeed together’ as I wanted to demonstrate the co-operative and successful nature of the bank. By drawing acrobats working and supporting each other, it is a visual metaphor for the relationship between the bank and its many customers. There is a strong sense of trust within the image, reflecting the nature of the bank itself. Lloyds won’t let their customers down, just as the female knows her fellow acrobats won’t. The image also portrays the message ‘We stretch ourselves’ - The acrobats have trained tirelessly, enabling them to perform to such a high standard.

Up in the air

My up in the air submission, my entry was selected to be exhibited and sold at the event held at 60 million postcards in Bournemouth. I had lots of people asking whether I was related to this baby - I can thankfully say I am not!

Saying that, I was recently looking through some old family photos and spotted one of my sister when she was a baby that looked particularly familiar.... Maybe there was some subconscious inspiration afterall...
