About the artist and work
An illustrator from Birmingham with a love for all things cute and bizarre. I studied illustration at BCU and have exhibited my bright artwork at places such as Gallery 1988, LA and on my own Moonpig cards. Ranging between portraits, animations and illustrations, my work has a focus n using fun vibrant colours and dreamy textures. A lot of my subjects are pop culture/music, food, animals and things that make me laugh! I create my art using a mix of markers, pencils, paints, paper and a drawing tablet.
Inspired by the colourful LGBTQ+ community of Birmingham, I wanted to turn the iconic Floozie into a rainbow drag icon, complete with obligatory pigeons. With some of the Midlands’ very own queens becoming more well known in recent years and with gay village being my favourite place in town for a safe and groovy night out, it felt right to create a nod in this direction as I feel our LGBTQ+ culture is thriving so much from louder and bolder acts of support, love, and pride.
