A midnight melody
Hello and Welcome

I am an Artist and Illustrator, I live in a small seaside town on the East Coast. Drawing has always been apart of me. My first sparks of creativity began at an early age. I would enjoy filling sketchbooks with colourful characters. I am grateful that initial spark of inspiration and creativity is still burning bright today. I graduated with a First Class Honours degree in Graphic Design and Illustration. Since then my work has taken me in two contrasting directions.
As an Artist I take inspiration from all things natural where there is a rich display of colour and light to capture. Painting in pastel offers a whole range of exciting possibilities to explore. I find it perfect to suggest luminosity and texture to my work. I use a combination of blending and layering to suggest the natural world. A sky with swirling clouds, a single flower or perhaps a special retreat are some of the subjects which move me to paint.

There is a real magic for me communicating an idea through pictures. My illustrations are very different in style and technique. They tell a story whimsical in style with a gentle sense of humour. As an Illustrator I have been fortunate to have work featured on several projects for Liberia, Uganda and Nigeria.
