“My work combines traditional hand-drawn sketches with digital painting, mixed media collage and bold, bright acrylic paintings on canvas.“
I graduated from the University of Derby after studying Visual Communication specialising in Illustration. I have had work published in the University of Derby’s award-winning magazine Dusted, been commissioned for wedding invitations, menus, posters, letterheads and created illustrations and logos for local business’ as well as regularly illustrating for Family Matters, Switzerland. I was also nominated to present work for the V&A Student Illustration Awards 2010, with my work based on identity.
I aim to produce original pieces of artwork and prints from wonderful hand-made cards to unique portraits that ooze personality. All made with love, dedication, and passion. No two original illustrations are the same with an emphasis on individuality and character.
“The idea behind my work is to capture the personality of the subject and incorporate that into the drawing, whether they are a lover of music, art or fine cheese and wine. Everyone is unique and my portraits and paintings are a way of celebrating diversity.”
