I studied design, graphic design and specialised in illustration. I worked as an illustrator for a number of years with agent representation, then began selling my work directly to the customer which I very much enjoy.
My artwork is inspired by nature, depicting local wildlife and scenes of both coast and country. Working in acrylic, I create pieces with a whimsical quality, using a colourful yet subtle palette. My work has a slightly naive style and using distortion of scale evokes a touch of nostalgia.
I create prints from my acrylic paintings using archival inks. My original pieces incorporate ceramic elements, giving them a unique relief effect. I also make ceramic hanging decorations, printed and handmade cards. This year I have included collage into my artwork, a tactile medium I very much enjoy exploring.
