I am currently the subject librarian for the textile design courses at Chelsea College of Arts, University of the Arts London. I am also an illustrator, print-maker, and children’s book creator. I am interested in the concept of ‘inspiration’, what this is, and how it is found, especially in the context of higher education libraries.


I did my BA in Illustration at Camberwell College of Arts, University of the Arts London, before completing my MSc in Library Science at City University London in 2013.
