I went freelance as an artist and designer in 2010/2011. I have always had a strong love of the drawn line, and of shape, form and pattern. An early education in art and design, textiles and stagecraft and my degree in graphic design cemented this leading to a strong linear presence in my work.
My love of nature and the surrounding countryside in the Wirral and the decorative arts informs my observations as does my sense of drama, humour and emotive content. My work comprises of a combination of strong graphic elements, pattern and shape through mixed media techniques including collage, surface pattern and texture, acrylic painting, drawing and typography. Subject matters include family, sentiments, positive affirmations, birds, animals, nature, landscape and more recently a personal more figurative series focussed on awakening and personal growth.
