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. Some of my work can be viewed at The Coquetdale Art Centre, Rothbury. Cards, mugs and coasters are available from Latimers Seafood and Restaurant, Whitburn. Cards are also available from Estrella Hair and Beauty, Foyle St, Sunderland.
