Hello and welcome!
I’m a London based Illustrator/Surface Pattern Designer. My processes involves drawing everything by hand, scanning my drawings and textures and assembling the final composition in Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, or both! Or I just paint traditionally, scan and clean up in Photoshop.
Drawing by hand and digital software are fundamental to my art practice. I also love exploring many different traditional art processes and finding new ways to marry them with digital technology. I have a keen interest in illustration, surface pattern design, digital art, printmaking, collage, mixed media, photography, travel and hand lettering. I’m hugely inspired by my love of travel, nature. Some of my favourite artists are Paul Rand, Raoul Dufy, Paul Klee, Henri Matisse.
I trained as a Graphic Designer and that career began way before the advent of Mac’s! I honed my skills the old fashioned ‘cut & paste’ way, getting to grips with sharp scalpels, the photography dark room, ruby lith film and bromides!! I taught myself the Adobe software which is now part of my creative process. Past experience includes, but is not limited to… 15+ years design experience working with a diverse selection of Blue Chip clients for whom I designed and produced a wide range corporate literature utilising my complete knowledge of design and print, attention to detail and project management skills.
