An illustrator who captures the intricate details of architecture by sketching
When did you start making illustrations? How have you changed since then?
Well, I’ve always loved drawing, Art was my favourite subject at school, and we’d spend lunches hanging out in the art rooms. Then when it came time to choose Unis, it was a toss-up between Art and Drama. Drama won. During my undergrad, I kept drawing on the side just as a hobby. Then (with a lot of support from my uni housemates), I set up a little Etsy shop and here we are!
It’s so funny to look back at work when I first started developing my illustrations. What I thought was decent back then, I look at now and think, ‘Boy, that wasn’t great’. But, even looking at work from a year ago, I can see how much more focused I have become on detail and working in a loose line style. It brings a drawing to life.
I’ve become much more confident since then. When I first started sharing my work, I was worried about how people would receive it and perceive me because of it. I would worry it came across as arrogant… don’t get me wrong – we have a long way to go. I still freak out at the thought of sharing my work. But we’ve come a long way!
