About

Born in Bristol, I attended school in Bath before attending the University of the West of England, gaining a Masters Degree in Fine Art & Context. I spend my spare time creating surface patterns, digital illustrations, mixed-media artworks and oil paintings. My full-time role is as manager working with the lovely Make Art That Sells team.

I now live and work in the City of Bath and it’s a vibrant place to be. The beautiful golden facade of the classical Georgian architecture belies the tired and worn, but still grand, muted interiors beyond. Contrast can be found everywhere you look: light and dark; gold and grey; somber and joyful. In my artwork for example, I love a brushstroke of gold to counteract the ungilded scruffier contrast of messy ink or paint.

Working traditionally and digitally, I adore great colour combinations and whether it’s digital or physical art, I love building the layers to add depth and interest. Florals, leaves and textures are recurring themes and I will often take photos as I go about my day. The ‘headdress’ in this digital art self-portrait started life as a vase of flowers I saw in the reception of local business. Inspiration may strike anywhere…..you just have to be ready.
