Who are you:
I am Tigz. Or Tigzy, as most people like to call me!

What do you do:
I'm a freelance illustrator and photographer based in London.

How did you start:
After graduating with a first in illustration from Westminster University in 2009, I was full of determination and drive and set up my own design studio in London, where I specialise in alternative photogaphy and picture books for adult audiences. Having entered the industry during the worst part of the recession, I was constantly writing letter, emails and making phone calls to advertise myself whilst working on personal projects to keep myself busy. Sure enough, my hard work paid off and I was able to release my fourth picture book Bitten this summer in Bath. The rest is history!

A Personal statement about you or your work:

Graduating in 2009 with a first in illustration from Westminster, she specialises in alternative and couture fashion photography and gothic illustration. Previous clients include Boomerang PR, London Burlesque Week and Diabolus Amor. Tigz has also featured in Digital Arts, Photoshop Creative and Computer Arts Projects.
