About Me:
Recently graduated from studying Illustration BA at Falmouth University, Southwest England.

Working traditionally with a variety of media, I produce detailed aesthetically pleasing imagery. I am particularly fascinated with the effects of light and colour, taking great pleasure experimenting with texture and surface manipulation.

My work often follows one of two key techniques; Soft pastels, building up layers and detail or textile. Previous experience as a seamstress has resulted in a style constructed with a mixed media collage combined with an applique style stitch. I occasionally like to tip toe across to ink or paint, creating or adjusting garments and have recently rediscovered a passion for woodwork. Confidently throwing myself into new concoctions of media.

I love to...
