“These illustrations represents my love for Victorian fashion, design and architecture. The Victorian aesthetic manages to combine unique, Anglian elegance with a dark, sometimes challenging gothic flair exemplified by extensive use of black. Whimsy vies with formality, creating an unlikely juxtaposition that undoubtedly informs and enriches my work.”
