I spent six years at art college where I chose to specialise in Illustration, finally completing a BA (Hons) degree in Graphic Design and Illustration at the University of Humberside, Hull in 1995.
I then gained knowledge of manufacturing whilst working within the candle and home fragrance industry, designing packaging, product development and marketing.
It was when I had my first child that I decided it was time to make a go of working as a freelance Illustrator from my home in Angmering, West Sussex. So that is what I did, and I absolutely love it!
Over the years, I've experimented with many mediums. I tend to work mainly with acrylic paint now, as I love its versatility. I mainly draw inspiration from decorative objects and pattern, and love to produce colourful and whimsical imagery.
I spend most of my time producing illustrations for the greetings card market, and have licensed many images to Publishers in the UK and overseas.
I also sell prints of my work and undertake private commissions including pet portraits.
I love to illustrate for children and produce a range of framed illustrated names and door plaques for children which I am continuously developing.
I hope you enjoy browsing through my shop and hope to hear from you sometime.
