I am a born again artist, who lives not far from the coast in South Devon, UK, where the sea blusters, gulls screech and sometimes the sun shines.

In a previous life, I have been a graphic designer and typographer, then a mum to two wonderful children  and now that I have hit what is known, apparently, as middle age(!), I realise I have neglected my first love of drawing, and painting, and colour and creating. I am reinventing myself, so that I when I am old and grey I will never wonder, what if?

I absolutely love to produce lively, colourful mixed media illustrations, repurposing old books and maps as both backgrounds and as inspiration! I draw by hand using ink, gouache paint and pastel, using traditional techniques rather than digital.

The designer in my blood loves to solve problems, and the combination of both makes for some quirky magic!
