Hey, thank you for taking the time to visit paperwingsillustration!
I am a freelance illustrator and print maker currently living in Rotterdam. I enjoy using bold, graphic colours and lines in my work and prefer to use a mixture of printmaking techniques, inks, fine liners and acrylic paints.
Originally from Hertfordshire in the UK, I graduated from the University of Hertfordshire in 2011 with a BA Honours Degree in Illustration and after graduating, went on to work at the University as a Senior Technician in Printmaking/Textiles where I was able to use the workshop facilities in my spare time to further develop my passion for print.
From June 4th – July 14th 2018, I was honoured to be able to exhibit several framed photo prints at the New Maynard Gallery in Welwyn Garden City, UK. The exhibit was intended to show artists who are currently work in higher education and how they use their specialist skills in their own work, ranging from photography to ceramics, painting, print and crocheting. Below you can find a link to the gallery’s website which shows the newspaper publication of the private view:
Since living in the Netherlands, I have had the opportunity to become self employed as a ‘Book cover designer’ with a well established thesis and book printing company called Ridderprint. You can find some of my recent covers on their online portfolio, alongside other talented designers.
If you have any questions or would like to chat about any possible assignments or designs, please feel free to contact me via my email address at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please also check out my Instagram and Facebook pages where I will be updating and posting my work regularly.
I hope you enjoy looking through my work!
