Shropshire born and bred with a passion for Painting and Drawing!
'All I do, and have ever wanted to do, is art'
For as long as I can remember I have always loved to paint and draw. In fact I had always dreamt I would become a professional artist one day!
Every year my Christmas lists would always include anything and everything arty, from painting by numbers to sequin art! This was my favourite thing besides spending the days baking. I was most happy sat around the kitchen table drawing or painting or in fact taking part in any craft activity often with my sister Loren.
Growing up in rural Shropshire, on a Christmas tree farm, I have been extremely lucky to be surrounded by animals and nature. I have always loved exploring the countryside, walking, going on picnics and taking photographs along the way. My work has often derived from these adventures.
In 2002 I went on to study Fine Art at Chester University and then completed a PGCE in Secondary Art Education. I went into secondary art teaching to pass my passion on to young people, and I loved it for 10 years, leaving in 2017 to pursue my dream of becoming a full time artist.
I now work from my studio at home producing original art, commissions, prints and greeting cards. I hope you enjoy looking through my portfolio.
