she/her

I am a Canadian illustrator based in Edinburgh, Scotland. I work predominantly within my local and LGBTQIA+ communities, but I am always open to new and challenging projects.

My work is often informed by my background in art history and plays with inspirations from early modern print culture and pop art. I work mostly in digital mediums, including, scalable vectors. Projects have included: editorial illustration, a festival programme, promotional materials for tourism, and events promotions.

At the heart of my business is an ethos of community support. I offer reduced rates to charitable organisations and I make regular monthly donations to six charitable organisations on behalf of my business (supporting LGBTQIA+ rights in Scotland and Poland, refugees in Scotland and Indigenous youth in Canada). I am also a part of the Somewhere Rainbow Enterprise Network.
