I am a Northumbrian artist based in Alnwick. Most of my work is produced in pen and ink which leans towards my main interests of drawing and illustration. I am heavily influenced my early to mid 20th century styles such as Art Nouveau, Art Deco and Futurism. The last of these stems from a visit to the Guggenheim gallery in Venice (my favourite city). I also love illustration and pen and ink artists such as Gustave Dore as well as modern graphic novel illustrators in particular Dave McKean.


I have a wide range of subject matters as this helps keep me interested in my work and helps me to develop skills and styles. I produce locally themes works for shops and fayres in my native north east especially in our tourist season. What I particularly love is producing narrative themed and inspired work. (Forever a fangirl). I am currently working on some book illustrations which includes first in a series of graphic novels.
