Born and grew up in Oxfordshire I have had a love for art right from an early age. Following A Level Art I continued to study art and design by attending Banbury Art College and finally the Surrey Institute of Art and Design in Farnham. Totalling six years of art training.
The main mediums I work with are oil, acrylic and watercolour to create paintings inspired by the beautiful countryside that surrounds me and seascapes from my travels. I love experimenting with an array of techniques to create interesting marks such as splashes, dripping, masking, dry brushing and fluid paint. I also design and create quirky paper craft pictures for children.
I exhibit at SOTA gallery in Witney, Oxfordshire and attend local Art Markets including Broad Street in Oxford as well as participating in Artweeks. I sell my paper craft creations on many internet shops including my own website. I also hold informal painting lessons in small evening art groups at home as well as larger day workshops with the aspiration to inspire others.
FUNKY KIDS ARTWORK - MADE TO ORDER WITH ANY PERSONALISED NAME
My range of 3D funky kids artwork was created from one design that I made for my twins' nursery. After having lovely feedback from friends and family I decided to develop them further and added them to my collection, which I have now designed over 12 characters. The quirky faces with often mouthless expressions and swirly eyes adds comical charm to the animals. All designs are original and personally designed by me.
