I’m an illustrator and graphic novelist with a love of genre-bending stories and a passion for humanistic expression. I enjoy drawing diverse bodies and exploring topics like gender, sexuality, and identity. I’m particularly drawn to sentimental stories with a slight edge that are ultimately optimistic, and projects that explore the perspectives of non-heroes and imperfect characters. In another life I may have been a gothic librarian, but for now, when I’m not drawing you can find me making up recipes, taking long walks with a personalised playlist, and devouring film analysis. 

For work regarding literary illustration, please contact my agent Kelly Sonnack, with Andrea Brown Literacy.
