I love to draw, my visual journal is never far from me and goes on all of our holidays, day-trips and walks, along with a huge pencil case full of pens, pencils, watercolours, brushes and any other creative bits n bobs I think I might need for that day’s illustration.
I am inspired by the natural world, I adore seed pods, their organic but exquisite forms are so intricate and beautiful. I also love to illustrate wild animals and hope that the wildlife conservation message starts to resonate with more people and that in a small way my art may influence people to really see, appreciate and love all animals and nature as much as I do. My style is illustrative and detailed, and has a strong narrative. It is whimsical and usually colourful. My subject matter is almost always organic. I create mostly in pen and ink with watercolour, but I enjoy using a variety of media, including acrylic paint and pens, gel pens, pencils, paper collage, printing etc.
