About me

I graduated from De Montfort University with a first class honours in illustration and graphic design in 2017, since then I have been building up my portfolio and designing bits and pieces for friends and family.  I have been drawing since I could hold a pencil and although my life took me in a different direction I was eventually drawn back to doing what I love.  I get most of my inspiration from just observing the goings on in day to day life and the rest comes from the insane visual world I have inside my head.  My passion is in illustrating for children, I have self published two children's books and hope to do many more in the future.  I work predominantly with coloured pencils and water colours but do enjoy pen and ink as an alternative, if I do use digital it is to make the odd adjustment and clean up the finished piece, I am a bit of an old fashioned girl at heart.  Thanks for taking the time to look at my work and please don't hesitate to contact me I am more than happy to answer any questions you my have.
