I'm Kirsty and I'm an illustrator interested in children's book illustration and print design. I like to challenge topics of children's books by using themes such as climate change and mental health, whilst maintaining the classic children's book feel. My MA project is a children's book based on mindfulness and mental health called 'Ernie's Mindful Journey' which I really enjoyed illustrating and writing myself. In the past I've been highly commended in competition briefs from clients such as Next Home and Ladybird. My future plans are to be a children's book illustrator and potentially have a role in children's homeware print design.
