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 final touch is adding a hand-stamped quirky or witty comment, if I can make you think or smile, I am extra delighted!
