I am an illustrator and artist. My pictures celebrate colour and pattern, using a range of media including collage, watercolour, gouache and pen and ink drawing. Inspiration comes from anywhere and everywhere, from retro textiles and Matisse’s paper cut-outs through to food packaging and book design, especially cookbooks. I love food and cooking, which is often the subject of my illustration work.
I studied Fine Art for my degree, specialising in Printmaking at West Surrey College of Art and Design (now the University of the Creative Arts). After several years working in the media, a few years ago I started making visual holiday diaries, rediscovering my love of creating handmade art and decided to explore further the illustrative potential of my work.
This year, I'm taking an extended break from illustration, and am beginning to develop a new collection of lettering based and abstract work.
