identity. belonging. expat life.

Who you are. How you feel inside. Where you live.


As an artist, I illustrate and educate about marginalised experiences for positive change.

With a focus on identity, belonging and expat life, I help people to navigate ‘otherness’.

‘OTHERNESS’ isolates.

It creates division, prejudice and suffering.

We are all someone else’s ‘other’

Drawn to a Story exists to redress the imbalance

Let my clients tell you for themselves:

All I can say is thank god What'sApp is free! Do All I can say is thank god What'sApp is free! 

Do you remember the days when your only real option for immediate connection with someone abroad was texting? It felt cheaper than a phone call..... that is until you received your bill! 

I am truly grateful for the ease of communication these days. However, it still depends greatly on where you live whether you have the privilege of the internet or a even a phone.

If so, you might not know the 'why' behind all the posts you see.  This manifesto explains my ambition.
