JOsie A PETERS
Josie Peters (she/her) is a cartoonist, illustrator, presenter and comedian who'll remind you that her title is Dr thanks very much that astrophysics DPhil (Oxford term for PhD) was incredibly difficult can't believe she did that.
In everything she does she is authentically a 'bit silly'. Her cartoons and illustrations are full of expressive characters, in her improvised comedy she'll morph into a new form, and she'll endeavour to add as much fun and light-heartedness to her presenting as is appropriate (she is a professional after all).
If you want she'll sing for you and she's quite good.
She still resides in Oxford because the buildings are old and pretty, the coffee is really good and it's the place where she met her best friends.
Josie is ADHD and Autistic and if you'd like to talk about it she'll spend a long time on it with you. She makes the odd comic, cartoon and TikTok about her experiences.
Josie has worked with:
