Thank you for visiting my website.
I am a multi-disciplinary artist based in Merseyside. I trained as an illustrator and printmaker and have had a successful career in greeting card, book and magazine illustration; clients include: Shared Earth, Mothercare, Harper Collins and Cann’s Down Press. I have also worked as an Artist-in Residence within education and the community, running art-based projects with children and young people.
My work is concerned with storytelling; reflecting my dreams and childhood memories and inspired by traditional folktales. Through my use of a rich-coloured imaginary landscape and characterisation; both human, animal and somewhere in-between; I am endeavouring to create a sense of magic and other-worldliness. Making art for me has always been a form of escapism; capturing the dreamlike atmosphere of a scene in an enticing narrative.
I now make art for exhibition and commission. My current medium is acrylic and ink on canvas. I also make glass-dome and hand-cast jewellery incorporating miniature versions of my images. I make mixed media original and limited-edition hand-cast or built ornamentsfor the interior epitomising my characters in three dimensions. I am always happy to consider commissions, please contact me to discuss prices and availability.
