Drawing and painting is a way for me to experience the world and learn about the things I am observing. I love learning about the things I draw and I enjoy the creative challenge that illustrating nature presents me.
My particular interest is in drawing foliage, flowers and landscapes. Creating characters to sit in my landscapes to make quirky scenes brings me a lot of joy and I really enjoy watching them all come together.
Mixing pencil, inks and collage makes for a lot of messy fun!
I’m never without a sketchbook and pencil and will draw almost anywhere. I take any chance to draw while we're out and my daughter loves to join in too!
I have been creating for as long as I can remember; drawing with my Dad when I was really young and creating my own characters with their own stories when I was a little bit older. I took the chance to study art at every opportunity I could through school, going on to study a BA hons in Illustration and Design.
When I'm not in my studio or rambling round the countryside, I love to make baskets from natural fibres, read books and piece together a jigsaw or two!
