I am a freelance illustrator and artist based in Sunderland, north- east England with a B.A. Hons. in Illustration and Design from The University of Sunderland. I originally graduated from Oxford University in Geography and, after gaining an M.A. in Landscape Architecture at Sheffield University, worked as a Landscape Architect in the U.K. and Colorado, U.S.A, before having a break to bring up my twin boys. After teaching Art in the Adult Learning/ F.E. sector, I decided to fulfill my life's ambition to study Illustration.
My inspiration comes from northern frozen landscapes, the Scottish and Northumbrian coasts and people-watching.
I paint with watercolours, water mixable oils and ink.
My current exhibition continues at the Coquetdale Art Centre 17- 30 March 2018.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
