I specialise in 2D illustration (digital and hand-drawn) and animation and have additional experience in graphic design. I have strong creative skills built through repetition of working to briefs in line with brand/client guidelines and the ability to work in a fast-paced project environment. Furthermore, my freelancing experience during and after my studies has made me a self-starter and has strengthened my communication and entrepreneurial skills.
