Due to the tiny size of my studio, I am open by appointment only in October.
*** To celebrate HBOS I am offering 10% off products in my Etsy shop! Use code: HBOS10 at checkout. Good until 22 October.
I paint and draw imperfect scenes of cute, awkward, shy, reading, swimming, acrobatic, travelling girls. My work is full of beautifully mismatched colours, too-long scarves, crooked boats, uneven umbrellas and curious cats. I love how every day things bring new ideas for me to paint and I love taking every day scenes and creating whimsical, light, joyful art, usually centred around the themes of reading, books, travel, swimming, animals and nature.
My tiny studio is in a tiny corner of our tiny living room of our sunny hilltop home in Midgley, which has stunning views over the Calder Valley. My work area is a very small, fun mess of paints, pencils, pencil shavings, paper and card covered in splotches of colour. I use a variety of mediums to create my work, including watercolour, gouache, pencil, even good old Yorkshire Tea.
Each of my paintings is a little homage to people who love life, are a bit introverted or who find comfort in colour and books. There is zero perfection in my art and this is because the most perfect thing about each of us is that thing, that to others, seems most imperfect.
Moss (our cat) and I would love to welcome you into our sunny, happy space.
Please message me ahead of arrival if you’d like a freshly brewed tea or coffee!
