PUBLICATIONS

CAPTURE - PAINT - PROTECT

As a British artist with a global footprint, I am at the heart of creativity and exploration. With a rich portfolio that spans internationally, I am a published illustrator, award-winning photographer, storyteller, and writer, bringing the wonders of the world to life through my lens, drawings and words.

Currently, I contribute to esteemed publications such as Dive Magazine UK and Oceanographic Magazine, undertaking assignments that have taken me to captivating locations like Cocos Island, Tobago, Australia and Indonesia. My camera, writings, and artwork serve as a testament to my passion for uncovering the beauty of our planet.

Among my accolades, I proudly was awarded winner for the travel category in the National Geographic Traveller competition 2020 and have received recognition from prestigious competitions such as the International Photography Awards and British Photographer of the Year. I created the animations of the Netflix documentary, Seaspiracy, and was named a finalist in the Young Initiative category for the Ocean Awards 2023.

Equipped with a BA Honours in Illustration from Camberwell College of the Arts London, UAL, and a background as a Freediver and Open Water Instructor, I bring a unique perspective to my work. Recently, I wrapped up a season as a freelance underwater photographer on the Ningaloo Reef in Western Australia and am currently freelancing globally, focusing on compelling conservation narratives.

Open to commissions, I am enthusiastic about contributing to magazines, journals, and digital illustration projects. Whether it's recording and reporting on travel, conservation, science and diving expeditions or collaborating with charities and organizations, I am dedicated to using my skills to make a positive impact.

Feel free to explore my portfolio and reach out for collaborations - I'm here to bring your vision to life through art and storytelling.

Talks and speaking events

Art meets Science WorkShop with Bimini Shark Lab, December 2022 - A week-long trip I lead with the Bimini Shark Lab team where we combined my passion for art, sharks and diving with conservation and shark science. We brought along a group of like-minded people to help spark their passion and love for art, science and sharks. On the trip, we were able to show people sharks for the first time and deepen people's knowledge about sharks. I was able to teach new techniques and skills to enrich people's arty imaginations and to go on to create art for change. It was a life-changing trip for many and we were able to smash our trip goals of creating more ocean art advocates for the world below the waves.
