My Self Portrait

Another project I worked on during lockdown is my self portrait. I really enjoyed making it as it’s not often I get to create something for myself to keep.

For reference I used a photo of myself wearing one of my favourite items in my entire wardrobe; a bright orange biker jacket.

I also experimented with a new technique for hair. Rather than cut out one flat piece of paper I wanted to try using multiple layers, just like how my hair is cut in real life. It was a challenge but the end result was better than I could have expected and will definitely be a technique I continue to use going forward.

I am a cheerful vibrant illustrator, who specialises in handmade greeting card design. I have a meticulous eye for detail and truly enjoy making someone’s day with my art. Paper art is my passion and my tool of choice is a scalpel. I also enjoy music, fashion and travelling. If I’m not at home making cards or on holiday, I am at a gig.
