I have always loved to draw, but a lightbulb moment happened when driving along my local high street, observing the vibrancy and activity of a community - shoppers and parents getting from one point to another; pathways crossing and intersecting, given context when placed against recognisable shops and schools. I realised that this passing of daily life is something that many people can identify with. Through my illustrations, I try to capture elements of such moments.
I use a variety of media to produce mixed media limited edition illustrations, adding colour sparingly so that the line of the pen and the white space surrounding it remains intact.
I live in Nottingham with my husband and two children, who sometimes appear (hopefully not reluctantly!) in some of the illustrations.
Commissioning a piece of work is really exciting – it is a chance to have something made especially for you and an opportunity to really engage in the creative process.
Perhaps you need accessories to go with a particular outfit or a piece of furniture to fit a specific space in your home. We can work with you to design something truly unique. You’ll be able to discuss your ideas, likes and dislikes with the Maker and together create a piece of craft, handmade for you.
This is just a first step, so don't worry, there’ll be plenty of chances to discuss details before finalising a commission.
