I'm a versatile artist, illustrator and designer, with a Graphic Design degree from Kingston University, Surrey. Having worked for several years for design companies in London and Bury St Edmunds, I've enjoyed freelancing since 2008.
Here you'll find design and illustration commissioned by my clients, along with self-initiated paintings. My work is often a celebration of the natural world, which is a constant source of inspiration for me.
Also available are my pagan greetings cards, celebrating the eight festival times of the year.
If you are a retailer wishing to stock these, please get in touch. I am increasing the range to include other life celebrations, such as handfastings.
My husband and I are heading towards our dream of buying and working our own woodland, with several interesting projects along the way. We try to live in a way that limits our impact on the planet, though of course we can always do better!
My spiritual path meanders between various influences - Druidry; The Ringing Cedars series of books; the writings and talks of Terence McKenna; a little bit of Buddhism; a return to Yoga; Permaculture, and inspiring conversations with the lovely people we meet. A recent interest in Ancient Alien theory adds to the confusion! I'm intrigued about where we came from and where we're heading, but will probably end up none-the-wiser! I think it's amazing that all this beautiful life exists at all. In short, my respect for the natural world and all life forms, (including humans!) is central to my way of life and my art.
Summer 2012 - I made the most of the kinder weather by setting up my 'studio' on my patio. Here I'm capturing in watercolour some wildflowers from a friend's garden.
Not one to spend much on fancy equipment, I've had the same honey jar for painting water for many years, the same goes for brushes and some of my paints too. My palette is simply a white plate from the kitchen. I have to replace my tiniest brush more often, as I paint a lot of fine detail and this one soon gets ragged.
