Creative person with a talent for creating beautifully ink painted drawings outlined in pen/pencil. My enthusiasm for trying out new challenges and methods have also led to gaining experience in print, and the use of adobe software. I have worked on a number of varied projects for different clients. Now, after building up a consistent body of work for my portfolio, I’m aiming to pursue a career in illustration that I can feel passionate about.
My main interest lays in art and illustration, I have a very versatile artistic style and love being creative. I’ve recently travelled around Asia which has given me some grate inspiration and led me to painting a series of over 30 images while I was out there. Since returning I have joined forces with two fellow designers to run a screen printing facility, where I have printed both my own, and the work of other artists for them. Other interests are health and fitness, plants and nature, science and politics.
