I have always been mad about art. As a child i would lose myself in reams of plain paper and felt tip pens. As i grew older i discovered chalk and oil pastels, acrylic paints and canvas and i've never looked back. Drawing, painting and creating is my passion, I simply couldn't imagine life without it!
I studied graphic design at university and left knowing my natural style was very much illustration based and after graduating this lead me into greeting card design.
Following a break to bring up my two children I became re-inspired by the child friendly art I did for them and this has developed into the work I do today.
Bold, eye catching, uplifting and fun, my art appeals to both children and the young at heart. I want people to enjoy my work as much as i have enjoyed creating it.
Inspiration comes from all around me, my daily life working with pre-schoolers, nature, animals, the seaside and people.
I work in two ways, either hand drawn designs, scanned, coloured and finished in Photoshop on my Apple Mac or original hand painted canvases in acrylic. I love colour and texture so I embellish some of my work with gems and sequins to add depth and interest.
Thank you for looking at my work and have liked what you've seen, hope it's made you smile!
