About me

What I do...

I am a Dorset based Illustrator currently focusing on decorated illustrations of women. Cards and limited edition prints of my work are available to buy at Gallery 65 in Westbourne, Dorset.

How I do it…

All my pictures start with a pencil drawing, which I digitally embellish with a variety of other drawings, paintings, prints and patterns. It’s all assembled in Photoshop where I piece together and build up the layers to create a final image.

My creative background...

I grew up in a very creative family environment. My Mum has been a huge influence. She's always making something! I have a BA Hons degree in Fashion Design and years of experience working as a visual merchandiser and stylist for high street fashion brands.

What inspires me…

​​

  • Women/people

  • Print and pattern in beautiful colour combinations

  • Vintage textiles & embroidery

  • Old photographs​

Why I do it…

There's a feeling of joy that wells up inside of me when I see or create something that delights my eyes. If I can light up myself and other people too, then that's very worthwhile to me!
