Create cool collage illustrations

Collage of politicians including Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn

I’ve been working as a freelance illustrator and collage maker for nearly five years. At university I flapped around, unsure of my visual language and how to adopt a style that suited me and what I wanted to say. I discovered paper art at the end of my second year of study, after realising that my love of film photography and the aesthetic of the prints could be incorporated into my illustration.

Ever since then it’s been a case of refining and reflecting in equal measure. I’ve made a lot of mistakes, learnt a lot of lessons and become more confident in the way that I work.
