I love to draw, more than pretty much everything ever. Emptying my brain onto a piece of paper and then sharing it with people hoping they get it, is as rewarding as it gets for me.
I think that it's so important we see more than just one type of body represented in the media and arts.
I studied illustration at Falmouth college of Arts, and my specialism was fashion, which isn't the most inclusive of expertise. I think I started to draw more diverse body types to heal my own body image. Plus size and a mother of 3, I didn't feel very represented.
I'm so thankful for all of the support I've had for my work so far, it means so much when someone comments or messages telling me that my drawings have helped them in some way.
Much of the work I share on my instagram, I don't reproduce for sale. Not every image, especially ones to raise awareness, are suitable to profit from. A lot of what I draw, I do so because it means something to me.
I'd really like to continue with these works, they're important to me, but I also need to be able to financially support myself and family.
I would really like to be able to get all of the ideas out of my head, whenever and wherever possible. I want to produce more graphic images alongside my painterly work. Designs for tees and art prints, and custom illustrations at a more affordable price point.
Access to this equipment would enable me to do all of that and more. I'm keen to develop my skills and be as productive as possible, constantly in pursuit of progress.
I don't expect you to share your hard earned cash for nothing, I've put together a bunch of rewards, for all different pockets, all of which are exclusive to this project.
Thanks so much for your help,
All love, all of the time,
