We Can Do This
My illustrations celebrate curvy and diverse women spreading a message of body positivity. I'm constantly pushing myself to illustrate women's bodies that are rarely seen in mainstream illustration and art including disabled, LGBTIA+, different race and ethnicity and mid and plus size bodies in the hope of normalising "normal" bodies.
I take a lot of my inspiration from classical and contemporary art, film, tv pop culture as well as people watching and people and bodies that I see on an everyday basis. I find that I can take inspiration from almost everything to conversations and quote, to shapes and colours.
My illustrations start off with paper pens and pencils, sometimes using coloured ink and pencil crayon, I then scan them and work on them digitally using photoshop and illustrator to finish them. I've been enjoying experimenting with a small amount of mixed media - photographing gold leaf and editing it on photoshop to create texture and metallic colours.
