I’m an illustrator based in Devon, UK, open to collaborations, commissions and meeting new people.
A consistent pastime when I was growing up was reinventing my own handwriting and creating hand-drawn lettering, which often manifested through doodled redesigns of existing companies’ logos or my own ones for imagined future ventures.
Needless to say the interest and delight in hand-lettering has continued, and has now grown into a love for line drawings created with dip-pen and ink.
I grew up in a household with a professional tea-taster and a Speech Therapist teapot collector and as a result have a mug collection that is becoming obscene.
I’m inspired by:
- The countryside and all that comes with it (for the moment, Devon, but the rich Cheshire countryside where I grew up)
- Psychology / understanding and exploring my own – and others’ – experiences of mental health, and relationships with their own bodies
- Symbols (yes, that’s a very broad interest)
- Scandinavian design and folklore (the Mumbys were once vikings, many moons ago)
