My Website

About Me

I am currently studying Illustration at the Cambridge School of Art. I am interested in all forms of illustrative and narrative art, particularly Artists' Books. I've also recently started Abandoning Art which is excellent!

Don't look at my website if you're waiting for an art swap from me! I usually post pictures so it will spoil the surprise :)

I am also a writer, with a few published short stories and a drawer full of unpublished novels.

I also love my garden, my two rescue dogs and my four chickens . I have two teenage children and live a cottage in a typical English village.

Favorite Music

I listen to rock and classical music, especially choral music. Most recently I have become interested in folk music, and I have a sneaking affection for brass band music as my son plays in a band.

Favorite Crafts

As well as Illustration I am interested in textile art and have made several quilts and wall hangings. I do a bit of rather bad knitting and have experimented with feltmaking.

Favorite Books

I read loads. SF, Fantasy, Crime Novels, Historical... and also Young Adult fiction as I try to write for that age group.

Likes and Dislikes

Not really worked this out yet! Watch this space as I think of more things to add.

Like: Mixed media Collage Textiles Print (linocuts etc) Text incorporated into artwork Horses Trees Leaves Flowers Old/vintage stuff Patterns Textures Stories Music People Places Science

Dislike: Cute baby animals Fairies and elves Vampires Unicorns Disney and other kids cartoons

Comment: Wow. The explanation of how you created the background was a wonderful addition to this swap. In hindsight it would have been interesting to see everyone's background before the final card. I took a picture of mine for my own records but never thought to send them along. So thanks for the extra effort!
