I am an illustrative artist based in the beautiful county of Suffolk. Inspired by living and working in the country and the variety of natural beauty we are surrounded by.
My style when working in graphite, is very natural, reflecting the realistic quality, form and movement of the animal. I enjoy creating a sense of character with each of my illustrations, finishing each one off with a name to suit! My floral, abstract paintings depict layers of stunning summer flowers and grasses. Created with spray and acrylic paints and this year finished in gold leaf.
I graduated from London College of Fashion with a degree in prosthetics, wig making and makeup for TV and theatre. After working freelance on numerous exciting projects including making wigs for the London musical, The Lion King. I chose to complete a PGCE in secondary school Art teaching. I was an Art, Photography and Textiles teacher for 6 years, until which time I left the profession and became a full time Mum to Ellsa who is now 11 and Louis 8.
Since having Louis I have built up my freelance artist work and have created a luxury British Made homeware range. Which brings together some of my most popular illustrations onto a variety of gorgeous British made products. Alongside this, I create and produce a number of original studies in graphite, pen and paint and at certain times of the year I can't resist a bit of crafting and so festive pot-pourri and wreaths may make a feature on my website!
I hope you enjoy it all,
