I have been writing for years and want my work to be noticed. I'm younger but very talented in the writing field. I have been a creative writer for quite some time and want to find something where I can share my writing with the world. I can submit work with in a few hours I work best under pressure because I know that is when it matters the most. I can form something from nothing, give me a topic and the ideas flow. I care about my writing an extreme amount.Writing has been a outlet for me and has given many people a chance to actually see and figure out who I am as an individual. In my free time I write, I have several journals and book's where I keep ideas and anything that comes to my mind. I'm open for any writing.

I enjoy and have focussed upon painting designs for greetings cards in water colour but am open to using other media. I own an etching press and, using that, have produced some designs as monoprints. I gained a BTec Ordinary National Diploma in Graphic Design back in 1992 but felt that my strength lay in illustration. If I have a style, it is fairly representational but I have experimented with abstract designs. I also delight in making cards which are personal to the recipient but, hopefully, not in an obvious way. An example being and engagement card for two friends, which depicted them as two deer looking at each other, from either side of a tree laden with red, heart shaped fruit, kitsch possibly but very well received. Two years running, I was chosen to produce the company Christmas card for the catering company which served Pinewood Studios in the UK. These were obviously film themed and great fun to do. I have also designed business cards for myself and friends who became self employed, one running a cattery, the other a gardening business, I also designed their business stationery. I would love to have the chance to design book covers.
