How/Why did you become a designer?

My number 1 passion has always been drawing and illustration. Growing up I always knew my ideal job would be where I can draw and be creative for a living. After studying an amazing illustration course I decided to establish my own freelance illustration side hustle, where I brought people’s special memories to life – which felt incredibly rewarding and fulfilling. I decided to go back and study graphic design as I wanted more creative career opportunities and soon realised that illustration and graphic design go hand in hand perfectly!

What do you love designing the best?

Nature, botanicals and animals are my jam – I do love some pattern design also! 

Tell us 3 fun facts about yourself?

  1. I probably couldn’t live without chicken pesto pasta in my life.
  2. I am a reality tv junkie and love anything involving celebrity pop culture.
  3. I’ve grown up on a little farm and own the cheekiest little Pomchi (Pomeranian x Chihuahua) called Alfi!
