ABOUT

Personal Profile

Hey Hi!

I am 21 years old and a First degree graduate from Staffordshire BA Hons Cartoon & Comic Art course. 

About:

I grew up in a remote village in Cornwall after living in the USA for the start of my childhood. I found my love for manga at an early age after stumbling across the Anime Elemental Gelade on Youtube. I remember how excited I was to pursue it and become an artist that encapsulates the style! Although I am proud of what I have achieved, there is still so much more I would love to do and be involved in.

WHAT I DO

I run my own successful online commissioned art business,
producing digital Manga/Fantasy Art character designs for purchasers.
This also overlaps with my comic convention business, where I sell 
not only my art and commissions but also physical handcrafted projects.

Instagram has recruited me as an Ambassador due to the 13K+ 
following my own art site. I receive a monthly retainer fee and run competitions and promotions to boost online traffic. Instagram has 
recently sent me an expense paid trip to London for an Ambassador 
Participation event. I am also an Ambassador on Superprof (Private tutor service) and for Skillshare.

2016- Present: Running my own art stalls at London, Birmingham, Manchester
 and Stoke Comic Cons, consistently achieving high volume sales and 
performing as one of my University course’s most successful sellers. Duties 
include campaign conception, stall design, production and printing of 
materials, marketing, responsibility for sales and cash float, own travel 
bookings. Submitting follow-up performance analysis. 
 
2014-2016:  Corporate silver spoon waitressing for events while at 
King’s Bruton Sixth Form. 
 
2014: Talk Talk London Headquarters - 2-week work experience in Design, 
Animation, and Advertising department working for the design section. 
Worked on digital design, media presence, advertising campaigns, attended 
planning meetings. Designed and submitted a Talk Talk online advertising 
banner which was subsequently used. Received a highly complimentary review 
of my performance from my employer at the end of my trial and an invitation 
to apply and be considered for a job with Talk Talk in the future.
