Originally from Hawarden, I now live on the Shropshire Union canal just outside of Chester. The waterways are a big influence on my work now, as for the past 2 summers we have explored the canals and rivers of the UK spotting wildlife and hidden gardens.
Travel, sustainablity, gardens and nature are themes recurrent throughout my illustration work. My latest favourite things to make are illustrated wood slice pieces- the wood is collected, dried, processed and painted aboard my narrowboat studio.
I work full time as an artist now and sell my work at markets and events whenever possible- in the summer you can find me trading from my boat as a floating gallery.
