About me

Kayleigh is a London based creative producer and freelance illustrator.

In 2019 she completed her academic studies, graduating in BA Illustration & Graphic Design, with an Erasmus year abroad at the University of Nicosia, Cyprus.

Kayleigh’s practice predominantly revolves around illustration- specifically drawing women of colour to project her own personal experiences. She uses bright palettes with a strong emphasis on emotion, utilising real data such as screenshots and text messages.

Alongside working as a researcher for LSE Cities on The Apprenticeship Programme in City Design, Kayleigh is also a Future Producer for Somerset House; a programme that seeks to train and upskill individuals from underrepresented backgrounds through various creative briefs. Additionally, she is a resident illustrator for Sick Love Zine, a multimedia platform dedicated to voicing issues that affect young creatives.
