"I studied for a FdA in Illustration Arts as a mature student single parent. I was apprehensive about returning to study, but I was soon made to feel welcome. The course was challenging, fun and informative. On completion of my course I proceeded to Plymouth University to complete my BA (Hons) Degree in Illustration. After my studies, I set up my own illustration business with my partner James called 'Flossy and Jim'. We are now a registered brand working for major global companies. Our illustrations have been published in several children's books worldwide, used in cartoons, and used on a global messenger app. We've been lucky enough to work with major clients such as a Hollywood film director, Heat magazine, ASOS and Apple, to name a few. I'm extremely happy I completed my course at University Centre South Devon, as it's given me the freedom to do a job I love!"Lynette Jordan of ‘Flossy and Jim’
