My background is in Fine Art and my work concentrates on painting, collage and printmaking. I also have an MA in Children's Book Illustration from Anglia Ruskin University. While studying for the MA I was able to develop my passion for storytelling through visual means that stand alone and pictures that accompany and enhance the written word. I am inspired to create other worlds that tell their own story or are the background to classic tales. My work seeks out patterns and atmosphere, in real and imagined landscapes.
I am interested in design, beautiful objects as well as people, landscape and creatures that can be adapted into my paintings, drawings, collages and prints. I love to experiment with different mediums; exploring and developing a visual language that can describe my creative preoccupations.
