BA (Hons) Fine Art and Illustration
As an illustrator, I look to create work that encourages and supports the ever-growing importance of a focus on mental wellbeing. Whether amongst children or adults, my brand Youtopia provides products to encourage individuals to understand the importance of taking care of their mental wellbeing and ways in which they can do so.
Recently, I have been working on multiple projects for Youtopia including children’s books and adult relaxation products. Youtopia products consider that individuals approach the care of their mental wellbeing in ways that best suit them, therefore, relaxation products range from cosy lounge items to stationery, active wear, cooking equipment and much more.
Youtopia will soon be releasing its’ first book, “Dexter Takes a Dip!” All of my children’s books aim to help raise awareness of mental wellbeing amongst children in a relatable and interactive way. There will also be a selection of free editions being provided to primary schools in Coventry as part of Coventry UK City of Culture 2021, following funding that has been awarded to the project by Coventry University.
