Her love for music is a big inspiration for Hello Marine's images, "music has a special place in my creativity though, if only because the music is always on in my studio". She says it plays a vital role in the creation of her illustrations and many of her favorite clients have been involved in music design. She also has a big collection of old and new art magazines which are a constant source of inspiration.
With some figure work both striking and memorable, Hello Marine’s work can be described as vivid, vibrant, sometimes retro or slightly surreal - appeal to both adults and children alike.
Now living and working in Brighton as an illustrator she divides her time between commissions for clients (including The Big Chill Festival, Penguin, The Guardian, Virgin, Coca-Cola, The Times) and personal work that she exhibits regularly.
