One of my earliest memories is of colouring in the alphabet letters in my first week of primary school and feeling completely contented!
I have never grown out of escaping to my 'colouring in', day dreaming and reading fairytales.
I received my first set of water colour paints at aged eight and fell in love with the fluidity and instinctual nature of the medium. I can never quite predict the way the pigment will behave and I think this has kept me striving to master it all these years, I still feel I have so much to learn.
I studied for my Ba(Hons) Illustration Degree at University College Falmouth, graduating in 2007.
Since then I have worked on book illustrations, art licensing and wedding stationery.
Clients include: Papyrus Greetings, Seller Publishing, Milkwood Publishing, American Greetings, Lovelane ltd, Paperlink and Miles Kelly Publishing.
I have always been drawn to the mystical and ethereal. I create work to evoke hope in myself and others, to uplift and escape from the every day...
I love to explore my own more conceptual and personal ideas with sketching and watercolour artwork inspired by narratives, music and nature.
You will find a selection of this work on this website to purchase and I share daily sketches and inspiration on my other social media.
I have forever been enchanted by Cornwall and I am so thankful to have grown up in such a magical place.
I create and pack all my artwork and prints from here on the South coast in a beautiful bay.
It is a childhood dream fulfilled to be selling my artwork so thank you for being part of that!
