Fine Artist & Illustrator

Professional info
 

Working across the disciplines of Fine Art and Illustration has enabled me to develop a versatile style that is suitable to the contexts of narrative illustration, editorial illustration and fine art exhibitions. I have experience in theatre set design, mural painting, book illustration and organising group exhibitions. I have a level 2 Add+Vantage qualification in Adobe Illustrator and am also literate in Photoshop and InDesign. After my time at Coventry University comes to an end I would like to pursue a career in freelance illustration and also continue to be an exhibiting artist.

Work experience

The Halfway Show - Broadgate House, Coventry

A large group exhibition, featuring work from all of Coventry University's third year Fine Art students. I was greatly involved in the organisation and preparation of this event, as well as exhibiting a series of my own work.
