Deep-Sea Dreamer (2024)

Deep-Sea Dreamer takes you on an eerie dive to the bottom of the world’s oceans. This illustrated design collection put a particular focus on the Giant Oarfish and the Deep-Sea Dragonfish.

Biome (2023)

Biome is a design collection that celebrates unique wildlife from around the world, with a particular focus on four unique natural habitats: high-altitude mountains, deserts, tropical rainforests, and coral reefs. I particularly loved illustrating the blue-ringed octopus.

These illustrations also ended up being concept art for a matching enamel pin collection.

River (2023)

River is an illustration-centric design collection that celebrates freshwater wildlife from around the world. I particularly loved including some lesser-known species in this collection, such as the pig-nosed river turtle and the yapok.

Fish Feb (2023)

Selected works from an illustration challenge I ran in February 2023. This art challenge encouraged artists all over the internet to create fish-themed art for every day of February.

video games ♡

I run an indie games company, The Lotls, together with my partner, Alan. We work as a team of two: I do the art and animation, Alan does the programming, and we collaborate on things like level design, technical implementation, audio, and UI.

Lotl Space Ranger (2023)

YouTube video

Lotl Space Ranger is a hand-drawn and rather unforgiving space shooter! This game has a high difficulty level and was designed to challenge experienced players.

As the player, you can customize your player character and choose from a wide range of fruit-inspired spaceships, before heading out on your mission to save the Lotlverse!

Lottie's River Run (2022)

YouTube video

Lottie’s River Run is a hand-drawn 2D side-scrolling game in the “endless runner” genre. The came has a chill and tranquil feel to it. You play as Lottie the Lotl as you navigate your way through an underwater river. Watch out for lava-spitting Froot Frogs: they do not like being disturbed!

I was the art director and sole artist on this game, and created the game in collaboration with game developer Alan Thorn.

Sprinkle Palooza (2017)

YouTube video

Sprinkle Palooza is a 2.5 platformer game demo I developed in 2017. You play as Zap, the balloon dog, as you navigate your way through an abandoned candy factory with sharp objects and mutant marshmallow minions.

I exhibited a playable demo of Sprinkle Palooza at EGX Birmingham in 2017, and received a super cute fan-art drawing from an attendee, which was the absolute highlight of my year.

  • Art director and solo artist
  • Animator
  • UI designer
  • Level designer

I was the solo designer, game developer, level designer and animator on this project. I did all the 3D modelling and animation, except for the main game character, Zap, who was modelled and rigged by 3D artist Sophie Knowles. The game’s music was created by musician and composer Pab Lo.

RayTale (2016)

YouTube video

RayTale is a 2D top-down platforming game I developed in 2016. You play as a stingray navigating your way through a dead coral reef, and use your electric powers to bring the reef back to life.

RayTale was developed for mobile using the Unity engine and digitally hand-painted sprites.

I exhibited a playable demo of RayTale at PC Gamer in London, 2017.

product design ♡

One of my big passions is to turn my illustrations into wearable jewelry and enamel pins. Every enamel pin I create has been intricately designed by me, from initial sketch to finished production concept.
