BA (Hons) Illustration with Animation
My work has a strong focus on character and visual storytelling, and I am fascinated by world-building for fiction. Research is a big part of my practice, as I use my love of learning new things to inspire me and ground my ideas in reality. I like to explore a broad range of themes, issues and ideas such as the climate crisis, gender and sexuality, folklore and magic-realism within my work. I work with a combination of digital and physical print-making processes to make everything big, bold and colourful while keeping the texture and physicality of traditional printing.
My final project is a post-apocalyptic sci-fi comic zine, risograph printed in teal, aqua and orange. My research into long-term nuclear warning systems lead to the creation of a narrative in which a futuristic society discovers a nuclear waste repository signifier 10,000 years in the future, raising questions about the danger of leaving our problems to future generations.
