A really big thanks to Computer Arts for featuring my work in the Computer Arts Collection Illustration issue in March and in Computer Arts issue 214 in May! Both issues contain interviews and an in-depth look at the creative process of recent projects I was involved with. Computer Arts Collection features the progress of the artwork I created for MAC Cosmetics released last year. Computer Arts contains the progress of the latest mixed-media piece I designed for LoveDough this year. I’m an advocate for documenting the creative process so it was a great honour for Computer Arts to publish the developments of projects I loved working on.
I was provided with beautiful photography by Anna Victoria Best for the illustrative artwork I was commissioned to create for LoveDough. They were a really great inspiration for allowing me to imagine what environment I could draw for them. Here are some work-in-progress shots relating to the brief.

It’s crazy how quickly time flies! During the past 12 months, I’ve worked on several great projects, created my own online mixed-media print store, joined an amazing illustration agency and have been a part of some exciting collaborations. However, doing this much can ultimately have an effect on projects that don’t demand immediate results. Having said that, I did want to share the progress of my collaboration with Singapore-based photographer, Scott A. Woodward. It goes without saying that Scott’s photography for our project is beautiful and I found them very inspiring for a specific theme that we agreed would work wonderfully. Can you guess what it is? Progress of this project will continue to be documented on Instagram.
After roughly 5 years of freelancing on my own, I am so happy to announce that I am finally represented by a wonderful illustration agency. The YCN Talent Agency are a close-knit team within YCN, who work daily with agencies, publishers and brands to source, commission and manage creative talent for their projects. It was a great delight to be offered a new place amongst their impressive list of illustrators and I am looking forward to working on some exciting projects together in the future!

I’ve started my New Year with a reignited passion for being proactive and creative! You can keep up to date with new and continuous work-in-progress images on the different projects that I am currently working on by following me on the Instagram app or by visiting my online Instagram profile.
To celebrate the festive season, I’ve added a Happy Holiday Treat discount to my online shop so you can include a ‘Maiden’ to your Christmas shopping list! Use the code HAPPYHOLS at the checkout to get 15% OFF all prints! Happy Holidays!
Last month I celebrated my birthday in Brussels. Although I was not there for long, I managed to fit in visits to the Atomium, the Manneken Pis and the Grand Place.
Mixed Media Maidens is my latest mixed-media project. I wanted to create a fully realised set with the intention to capture the attitude and confidence of each woman. Everything was drawn and coloured by hand while the real imagery was added digitally. Original photography by Anna Victoria Best. These ‘Maidens’ are available as limited edition prints in my online shop.
I started the conceptual photography site, Random Got Beautiful, when I was still a graphic design student in 2007. Now after 5 steady years, I have redesigned the site to match the look and feel of my current personal portfolio site. Have a browse and perhaps submit some colourful photos too!
