About

I'm an illustrator and independent comic book creator.

I was born in England but spent my childhood in Hong Kong. I moved back to the UK at the age of 18 and now live in Manchester with my partner, author John Tristan

I’m passionate about equality and these themes weave themselves into my art - body positivity, feminism, disability, LGBTQ and BAME representation. I have worked with LGBTQ organisations to help produce invaluable resources for minority populations.

My comics feature characters that are rarely seen in mainstream media, with non-exploitative storylines. They can be purchased online or in comic book stores.
