Originally from Wigan, I started drawing from a very young age often filling up notepads of paper with character drawings and doodles – none of which seemed to have a background; a trait that has followed me throughout my entire art career from student to artiste!
I graduated from Lancaster University with a degree in Fine Art; I developed not only a love for visual art but for story telling too. Many of my drawings and digital paintings are based on snippets of stories from my imagination or well known fairy tales. I have a fascination with birds and animals which you will find is evident throughout my work, I love to give my animal characters humanistic characteristics – you may even find a few dressed up in human clothes.
Since graduating I have been involved in a variety of projects from created full wall murals, childrens book illustration, and creating an array of homeware and unique fashion wear with my illustrations! I often attend craft shows throughout North West England, so remember to keep up-to-date by reading my blog!
