I am a writer and illustrator currently working on a graphic biography of Virginia Woolf which will be published by Weidenfeld & Nicolson in July 2024 in the UK, by Pantheon in the US, Grasset in France, Lumen in Spain, Rowolht in Germany and Companhiadas Letras in Brazil. I am also an LAHP funded PhD candidate in Creative Writing at King's College London. Prior to an MA in Illustration at Camberwell College of Arts, I received a First in English Language and Literature at the University of Oxford. While at Camberwell, I became the founding editor of Whip zine, a magazine of political cartoons and satirical writing by women. Whip has been featured in VogueIt's Nice ThatI News, the BBC, and Riposte magazine, amongst others. 

I have written reviews for the TLS, taught a seminar class on Virginia Woolf to undergraduate Liberal Arts students at Wells College, New York, spoken at the 2022 International Virginia Woolf Conference, and at a panel event at the Tate Modern on the theme of 'Must Satire Offend'. In 2018, I was included in The Inking Woman: 250 Years of Women Cartoon and Comic Artists in Britain, published by Myriad Editions. I am based in South-East London and grew up in Stockport.
