Hello . . .
…fantastic to see you here! Welcome!
If you want to commission illustration I’d love to work with you; please view my portfolio here. I have 27 years experience as a professional artist and illustrator.
I’ve illustrated romantic fiction for magazines, designed hundreds of greeting cards and several children’s books. For fun over the past few years I’ve created repeat patterns for fabric and paper and produced my own collection of wrapping paper.
You can visit my shop, where you can buy original art and prints; commission portraits and find cards and wrapping paper always handy to have around for those important occasions, impromptu gifts or to decorate walls and surfaces! You can now buy from a selection of works on paper too, these are paintings on acid free cartridge paper - suitable for framing under glass. Frames are not included but may be shown for illustration purposes!
Lately I’ve become passionate about my painting, I’m self taught; though I have a degree in Graphic Design ( specialising in illustration ). I am inspired by colour, light and form; whether I create an abstract painting from imagination, a hand lettered greeting card or an observed still life. What all my work has in common is the expressive brush work, love of colour, and through the interplay of these - emotion.
