I studied printmaking at the Royal College of Art and became involved with small press and zine culture shortly after graduating. I’ve created three graphic novels these include The Dancing Plague, A Thousand Coloured Castles and The Black Project which was nominated in the Sélection Officielle at the 2018 Festival de la Bande Dessinée in Angoulême. My work has appeared in ArtReview and Kuš and was included in the Comics Unmasked exhibition at the British Library in 2014.
