set and costume designer and illustrator

  • Location: London
  • Freelancer: Available

Set and costume designer, illustrator and maker of things.  I was based in Kenya and then I moved to Istanbul and now I am back in London.  

I enjoy imagining creative ways to tell a story whilst sipping coffee out of my royal mug.  I particularly enjoy doing this with other people of the production team.    

I get my inspiration from all around; people watching on the tube, the bus, the tv, airports, libraries, museums, art galleries...

My favourite photographer is Martin Parr.  I also like dinasours.
