Hi, I'm iella! A migrant from sunny Malta, resident in London, UK. Primarily a designer and visual artist, my exciting career path has moulded me into a creative industry unicorn: digital multimedia specialist, illustrator, storyboarder, consumer product designer, board game design, and graffiti artist!

I graduated with a BA in Art History from the University of Malta in 2011, followed by an MA in Communication Design (illustration) at Kingston University in 2013. 

Since 2014 I've worked full-time as a designer at Warner Media / Cartoon Network.

My personal work is influenced by 90s animation, video games and nature. It tends to be figurative and representational, and I often explore themes of fantasy, climate change, existentialism and personal experiences. 
I'm an active sketchbook keeper and life drawing fanatic. You'll often find me in different London drawing groups.
