With the work at the Humanitarian Leadership Academy, I get to be innovative and explore new ways to tell visuals stories to support learning across the humanitarian space. My work varies from project to project, from live draws, eLearning development, diverse character building for safe space decision making scenarios, gamification of learning interactions, external consultancy work and even explored into the new world of metahumans.

During lockdown friends started playing Dungeons and Dragons using online tools. This was a great way for us to connect, tell stories and have fun. As a gift to them I painted there characters for them using a combination of traditional and digital art.

A traditional artist who studied at Falmouth Art School, I can turn my hand to oil, pastels, drawing and sketching, pencil, ink, installation art, live draws, tutoring, and all manner of other run and creative methods of mark making and visual storytelling.
