Illustrator and printmaker
I graduated from the University of Derby in 2006 with a first class honours degree in Illustration. Since then I have shared my passion for printmaking with others through workshops in schools and communities as well as exhibiting and selling work in the UK and abroad. Currently I am collaborating with a writer to create a childrens book.
The inspiration for my work comes from a love of drawing life around me. I constantly fill sketchbooks, take photographs and gather ephemera whilst travelling anywhere from a trip to the shops to a journey abroad.
Recently whilst working on ideas for my new work I was introduced to solar plate etching. This medium gave me fresh inspiration and new ideas enabling me to continue my journey of experimentation into printmaking.
My recent body of work ‘Travel Diaries’ was inspired by and used images from my own collection of memories, sketchbook drawings, photographs and ephemera. The journey continues!
