MA Communication Design
I am an illustrator working predominantly on children’s illustration, my work is generally playful and sometimes child-like. Through my MA I have illustrated several children’s picturebooks, and hope to progress my illustration work after my MA.
For my Masters project, I decided to do something different to my usual work. I have been influenced by the rise in mental health issues during the pandemic, and wanted to produce something in response to this, whilst maintaining my playful style and produce work that is positive.
Lemonly Crafts is a small business I started, curating craft toolkit’s designed to improve mental wellbeing. I have also tried to keep them as sustainable as possible and this has effected much of my design processes. My first kit is for bookbinding; a craft I find particularly relaxing, due to the repetition. I have plans to produce more kits in a variety of different crafts; my next focus will be embroidery.
