Handle with Care

Post Journey
Postcard Design: Gouache illustrations printed on card, 2019.

I’m a graphic designer and artist with a focus towards illustration and mark-making. My practice consists of both fine art and design centering on handcrafted works intertwined with digital outcomes. Within my practice I explore both mundane and imaginative subjects, constructing a unique vision of the world around me and the curiosities I seek out. Through this exploration I aim to capture elements of my world and the world I imagine, communicating and sharing the stories and ideas through visual and graphical conclusions.

My project is a series of twelve hand illustrated postcards of locations I have visited throughout my life. This series of work is a personal reflection on the places that have shaped who I am and the memories I have attached to these geographical locations.
