About me

I'm an illustrator and designer, currently based in Bath, originally from Honduras.

After graduating I explored work as a freelance illustrator for some time, and have recently started an internship at a graphic design studio.

Why did you choose the course you studied at Bath Spa?

I chose my course as it was a way to develop my illustration skills and apply them in a graphic design context.

What were the highlights of your time here?

Working as a team on live client briefs, as we did with Bath Abbey, was a wonderful and rewarding experience. Bath Spa also helped me take a semester abroad in Spain, which was a great way to meet other designers and learn different techniques.

How did the course support your steps into industry?

The course helped me develop my design-thinking and voice as a creative. I was able to meet industry professionals through networking opportunities, and made friends and connections with peers in the process.

"The best thing about the course is..."

The freedom to explore your own style and interests.

"I am most proud of..."

During my time at Bath Spa I co-founded and was president of the Illustration Society, which has continued to be a wonderful community for people who love to draw.

"My advice for current students..."

Make the most of your time as students. Learning is fun, and this is your time to really experiment and try new things. Make friends with as many people as you can!

"I recommend Bath Spa because..."

The location is a great hub for creatives.
