About Me

I am a London-based illustrator with a background in fine art and science illustration. My work ranges from depictions of hand-carved objects collected by explorers in the early 1900s to cutting-edge medical devices, and has appeared in such diverse settings as The Smithsonian Museum of Natural History and the V&A. It has been published by Oxford University Press, Springer-Verlag, and The Journal of the American College of Surgeons, among others.

In 2019, I received my MA in Visual Communication from the Royal College of Art. My current body of work is an experimental approach to illustration, creating installations around themes of time, erosion, and belief systems within the museum environment.
