I live and work in Hackney, East London where I've been living for the last 10 years, it's changing a lot, I hardly recognise parts! But a walking moustache is a good indication that you're in the borough!
I'm a freelance illustrator and textiles designer mainly working in printmaking, doing commissions for individuals and companies, and I also design and sell my own fabrics for upholstery. My fabrics have featured in The Observer, The Independent and The World of Interiors.
My inspiration comes from many things, but I have to admit I do really like feathery creatures; the colours they don and the way they move inspires drawings. I love people watching and animal watching. I like learning unusual historical facts, such as the way medieval people in England would stuff their shoes with moss to make them more pointy. I love foraging in the British Museum for fascinating artefacts to absorb and draw, and the Pitt Rivers Museum in Oxford feels like home. All of this feeds into my work.
