Hello and welcome.

I have been painting for many years both with traditional materials, and more recently, digitally. 

Spending much of my 20's painting with traditional methods, I was introduced to the basics of Adobe whilst achieving a BA (hons) in Fashion Design and Production. I now paint all of my art in Photoshop on a Cintiq (a magic tablet!). I start with a pencil sketch and then scan or photograph it to continue working on digitally. As all my work is digital there is no 'original' as such, but the freedom to be more experimental with composition and colours without the fear of ruining a painting is a great bonus, as is the ability to easily create prints and cards of my work without the need for additional scanning or photography. 

As well as producing prints and cards I also illustrate children's books, most recently a retelling of six Hans Christian Andersen fairy tales for a French publisher, and I am currently working on several jigsaw designs for Ravensburger.

I live in North Yorkshire (UK) with my partner and our 3 children. 

You can see more of my portfolio here. 

I hope you like what you see and please get in touch if you have any questions. 

Thank you for visiting :)
