I am a visual artist and illustrator.
Ink is my preferred medium but I also work in pastel, pencil and mixed media. My work covers a broad range of subjects, from places to peacocks. Through texture and detail, I aim to depict mood and atmosphere.

I studied Graphic Communication at Bath School of Art and Design.
I now live in Shropshire.

I have a range of prints, cards, stationery and other self-designed wares available from my brand Pavonis Press.

In June 2017 I set up Drawing in Shropshire"Social gatherings with a twist." Free monthly meet-ups which take place in different venues around the county.

I take commissions for both painting and illustration. I also run workshops and do painting demonstrations in my local area.
