Landscapes and quirky scenes are my weakness. Oil pastel allows me to capture the colour and movement of the land and nature just how I interpret it. The details and characters are created with a dip pen and ink in my signature teal colour and add a really satisfying depth and movement to each piece.

This style lends itself nicely to book illustrations, jigsaws and greetings cards.
