These are examples of the hand lettering I create. Much of my work is expressive rather than tightly controlled. I enjoy the happy accidents that occur working this way.
I love to draw from life when I can but failing that to draw from found images for fun or purely from imagination. These are some of my favourite sketches and drawings. I particularly enjoy drawing with ink.
Paint is my natural medium, whether watercolour or more latterly acrylic. The versatility of acrylic means that I can paint with it as if it is watercolour or use it more like oil paint.
Over the past few years, I have taught myself to confidently create repeat patterns, primarily in Photoshop. These are examples of some favourites, many of which are available to license from me.
Over the years I have illustrated several children's books and many cards; my favourite work in this area is the wrapping paper designing and the greeting cards I have created for Moobaacluck (now part of Inkpaintpaper) but I was delighted to be commissioned by Ladybird books many years ago to illustrate a few books for them and went on to paint several board books for other publishers.
