Costume Illustration, Costume Graphics & Concept Art

Originally educated in graphic design and visual communication, I worked as a creative director and producer in fashion, advertising and publishing before training at Bristol Old Vic Theatre School as a costume and performance designer. As a designer I’ve worked on projects spanning theatre, film, dance and interactive entertainment and am especially interested in multidisciplinary projects.

I currently work in high end TV and film as a costume design assistant specialising in illustration, concept art, costume graphics and digital artworking. I work with designers to communicate their vision via illustration, visual research and presentation design, as well as facilitating special process work such as laser cutting, screen printing, digiprint and costume props. I’m comfortable acting as a bridge between repro and the design room, helping to create bespoke artwork in collaboration with the design team.

  • PETRIe MAGAZINE - ART DIRECTION

    Launched in 2012, PETRIe is an independent publication providing a platform for emerging talent. Our aim was to honour transparent, honest dialogue, and prize integrity, celebrating the under-looked, empowering the disenfranchised, and highlighting the inherent beauty of the marginal. During my time with PETRIe I acted as Creative Director and Co-Editor in Chief for the re-launch of their print and digital platforms in 2015, later taking on the role of Managing Editor and Creative Consultant for the print issues of PETRIe 68 and PETRIe 69. Together with the team I managed and commissioned over 150 unique projects, including collaborations with The Major of London, Youth Club Archive, Inspire! EPB and brands such as Christian Dior and Yoji Yamamoto. We particularity championed work with young people and emerging creatives, as well as those from underrepresented communities or challenging socio-economic backgrounds.
