My work aims to capture characters in a way that the readers can truly connect with, both emotionally and visually.
Throughout the years my passion for sequential storytelling has found a home in my work. I love to create stories, characters, and dialogue as part of a visual conversation that others can engage with and relate to. Nothing is more exciting to me than knowing that every day my art is improving and the horizons of my capabilities are expanding - I can't wait to see what I can achieve tomorrow.
Final year project
