About My Work

I’m a Birmingham-based artist, with a focus on graphic essays & memoirs.

I mainly use ink brushes & nibs to get down the energy from people & places I’ve seen, and to pass on knowledge & share experiences. I work under the principle that anything worth saying has been said before, but no one was listening; so it’s worth saying again (a quote I absorbed from somewhere).

I’ve recently started prioritising creative projects. I’m learning a lot as I go along, so if you’d like to check out what I’ve picked up so far you can check out my blog or sign up for my newsletter for updates.

My Background

I studied Japanese & English at University, and since 2015 I’ve been co-coordinating the Birmingham branch of the international graphic novel forum Laydeez do Comics and hosting workshops with Afrofutures UK. 

I’ve self-published and contributed to a number of anthologies and journals, including a graphic essay on Afrofuturism for How We Get to Next and From Stigma Power to Black Power with sociologist professor Imogen Tyler. I’m editor of LDC’s first comic anthology Hometown & I’m currently working on the LDC 10-year anniversary anthology edition.

My work has been exhibited in the Cartoon Museum in London and published in the widely celebrated anthology ‘Inking Women: 250 Years of British Women Cartoon and Comic Artists’.
