About the artist and work
After Graduating from Birmingham City University in 2019 obtaining a degree in illustration, I was then mentored by illustrator Luke Waller and began freelancing. My illustrations begin as physical sketches that are then outlined with black ink before scanning and colouring each piece digitally, combining my favourites of traditional and contemporary techniques. I blend elements of both abstract and realism, enjoying the challenge of designing successful illustrations within the confines of line work and flat, block colour.
This piece is inspired by the Birmingham’s iconic Floozie in the Jacuzzi water feature. Reimagined as a modern day creative, Flo represents the many artists that help make the city the heart of art in the Midlands. Her tattoos celebrate a handful of the vast number of trades that Birmingham is known for. Creatives bring an abundance of colour, expressionism and free thinking to the city, which is something I’ve tried to capture in just one image. I believe this work is a good example of my own style, highlighting my flair for combining a collection of objects or subjects together to communicate my ideas.
