After graduating from Worcester University with a degree in both Fine Art and English Literature, I am now working as a freelance artist / illustrator. As a youngster I revelled in writing stories and bringing these to life through drawing and words. As I have grown this passion has not diminished and I continue to return to childhood fantasies through illustration and creative writing.
My "Wonky Droitwich" painting, a watercolour, ink and pen piece of Droitwich Spa's high street, has caused a stir! A limited number of prints (out of 250) in sizes A3 and A2 or larger are now available to purchase. See the painting on the Local Views page.
I love producing Stylised Portraits which are paintings of people in a cartoony style, picking up on their hobbies and interests. There are endless possibilities and each painting is unique which is why I love to paint them so much. Seeing a customer's reaction when they see their commission for the first time is a lovely part of the job.
I am regularly commissioned to produce greeting card designs and paintings for children's bedrooms, prints of which are available at the local gallery Nice Things in Droitwich Spa.
I have also exhibited in the Jinney Ring Craft Centre following my appearance on the BBC program 'Paul Martin's Handmade Revolution'. (See the Exhibitions and Events page for more details).
I have been the Artist in Residence at St. Peter's Primary School in Droitwich Spa and a few years ago took part in their 'Arts Week', working with children from all year groups to create 'Superhero Olympic Athletes' in watercolour and pen. I also worked with the pupils to create a stain glass window for the entrance of the school based on Saint Peter and was commissioned to create a large mural to hang in their main hall, a photo of which can be found on my Exhibitions and Events page.
I have also visited the children at Witton Middle School and Sychtampton First School.
I am an active member and secretary of the Droitwich Arts Network (DAN) and regularly take part in artistic events in the town, helping to engage the public through all forms of art.
I am now selling personalised prints and original paintings for children's bedrooms. I feel my illustrative style is suitable for a variety of purposes from individual commissions to greetings cards, portraits and book publication.
