I am an artist and illustrator who graduated in textiles and surface pattern. My working career began in a design studio creating patterns for the fashion fabric industry. After spending the last 10 years working and painting in the Canary Islands I am now based in the beautiful coastal town of Whitstable in Kent.
Working predominantly in watercolours my paintings have encompassed a wide range of subjects. I love the constant fresh inspiration that variety brings. Being a designer I still have a passion for beautiful illustrative detail and enjoy dreaming up bright colourful whimsical paintings which contrast with the still life, animal portraiture and landscapes that I also love to do.
My current work falls into 2 categories, the first being the colourful world of whimsical illustration and the second being Beyond The Sea Wall, my new adventure inspired by the beautiful town that I live in. Whitstable is an eclectic mix of traditional working harbour, bohemian shops and the quirky streets and alleys that lead the miles and miles of breathtaking coastline.
I create a variety of original paintings, prints and cards which are available from:
