Fashion illustrations created for Boots Style IQ range...
"Rock that frock, with all of the tricks of the trade, Style IQ's ultimate top draw must have. Hide away a multitude of sins to give any look an individual twist. Boost that bust with the bosom glitter gel cleavage enhancers, hide those straps with the outta site clear bra straps, stop that gape with some kinda magic fashion tape, change that shape with call for back up bra step convertor clips and nip it in the bud with the nipple petals to create that desired sleek look."
A great big book packed with amazing work by fashion illustrators from around the world - myself included!

My work will feature alongside that of other graduates of the acclaimed Falmouth BA (Hons) Illustration Program. The Exhibition is being held at The Illustration Cupboard in London from February the 3rd - 12th. I hope to see you there!
"This is a course that has distinctive features giving it a defined edge being underpinned by professional practice and does not discriminate regarding visual language or style. It also has considerable connections with the industry in London, Europe and North America. Many former students have made significant achievements in a wide range of contexts both nationally and internationally with successful careers in the media and communication industries and beyond. This exhibition is an exemplification of the high quality, diversity, innovation and creative practice that has become the Falmouth Illustration hallmark."

This month I created some feminine floral style illustrations to accompany an article about the menopause for Slimming World. I was also featured on the contributor's page! I used a range of both cool and warm purples around the figure, who is resting and has a slight flush in her cheeks.
Stella Magazine, the fashion and beauty supplement to The Sunday Telegraph, asked me to create three illustrations to accompany an article entitled 'An A to Z of Summer Beauty'. The brief was quite open and simply asked for summery illustrations that featured some elements from the article. I had just returned from my honeymoon in stunning Hawaii - so I had no shortage of visual references for summer!
This new and exciting fashion website takes your measurements, explains your body shape, shows you clothes that suit you, tells you what size you are in virtually every shop you can think of and let's you buy online! I have created a series of fashion illustrations for Dressipi to help users see what body shape they are.
US based women's magazine Her Nashville commissioned me to create the cover for their 'I do' issue, full of all things weddings - very apt seeing as I am currently planning my own!
Little Black Dress books commissioned me to illustrate the cover of this fun east meets west romantic novel by Rekha Waheed. The brief was to create an image using mehndi patterns and bright colours - I loved illustrating this cover!

Brand new organic skincare company Oskia are taking the beauty world by storm. They have asked me to create figurative illustratons to feature on their lifestyle website pages. Keep checking the Oskia website for my latest work.
I was asked to illustrate Wiley's recent title 'Fashion for Dummies'. This project took over 3 months of full time illustrating, and my arm nearly fell off, but it is great to finally see the finished product. The full colour book gives insightful hints and tips and is full of lovely illustrations!
Perhaps you need a wardrobe weeding session with London based personal shopper Sophie Deedes! I worked closely with Sophie to create an identity for her brand High Heels Personal Shopping. It was great to be able to apply my illustrations across a broad range of media for Sophie's business - I designed her logo, website and business cards.
Apparently there are vinyards in England? British made wine is becoming more and more popular with wine drinkers taking 'staycations' to visit the vinyards and sample their wines. The 'Grape Britain' article published in the Virgin Trains Hotspot magazine featured an illustrated title with grape vines.
Harper Collins commissioned me to produce three book covers for acclaimed fiction author Freya North. 'Love Rules', 'Pillow Talk' and 'HomeTruths' all feature full cover illustrations, this project was a little different for me as I got to use paint!
Businesswoman Boutique has commissioned me to create a series of garment illustrations to advertise products available to buy from the website. Illustrations will feature on the home page every month.
