Always a fan of a good story I studied illustration at Edinburgh College of Art, my passion for screen printing followed and I brought to life literary characters I loved in little hand printed books.
A move to Brighton gave me the opportunity to study a Masters in Sequential Illustration and to continue with making and printing.
A painting career then developed from showing a few tentative paintings in a pop up shop. I painted florals and landscapes and have been published nationally and internationally.
My love of the outdoors and surrounding nature continues and has been fuelled by a move back to my home of Yorkshire. Now I paint soft, dream like landscapes of places close to my heart from my studio in Hebden Bridge. I also love to paint whimsical birds and I hand print a range of screen printed products. Screen printing has opened the door for me to create not just art to hang on a wall but art in the form of cushions, brooches, mobiles and much more.
Everything I make is proudly handmade here in Yorkshire!
I make art that makes you smile; bright pictures to escape grey days.
