About

My Story...

I always wanted to be in art somehow as I loved it so I studied it at uni out of school and then went on to spend years teaching art in a secondary school and dabbled with selling my work and taking commissions, but I then took a long break of ten years which we spent travelling for my husband’s job which didn’t exactly make it easy to create art. When we returned home my daughter started school and I started to dabble again, but between working part time, studying for my Masters degree in art education while also teaching art part time privately and in a school or two, which meant there was little time. When I finished my masters I took time away from work and tried to find my style and exhibited and did lots of things but never really found my feet. I was selling my work a bit online, and in different outlets but never had the confidence to really push it and it was all a bit hit and miss and a bit of a mess if I'm honest.

In 2013 all of that changed when I was diagnosed with advanced breast cancer and given a very grim diagnosis. I made a deal with myself during a very long year of treatment that if I got through it I would give selling my work a go and follow my dream. So happily when I came out the other side I jumped in and started putting my work out there on instagram and saying yes to work opportunities that came my way. Within six months of starting to say yes I had illustration work coming in regularly and my confidence grew the more work I did, and so I started also selling online, and then also teaching an online class, and now 2 years later I spend all week working on illustration jobs, commission work, filming and planning new classes and doing work for myself and my online outlets like this one. I am excited to be making changes and using my new found tech skills to put this store together though if I am honest there are still times it scares me at times but I am putting on those big girl pants and launching into this thing. So for me out of the hardest of times came a courage to stop worrying about failing and just give it a go, and I knew if I could get through that year of treatment I could make art more than just my passion.

So here is my shop... full of some different things as I am inspired by the things that I love. So teacups, great packaging, beautiful flowers, my environment and things around the house, and most recently I am completely obsessed with painting and creating lino prints based on blue and white china. I know that I need to be doing something creative and I love recording our lives and things that catch my eye through my art and through my sketchbooks. It is my way of recording my life and sharing it.
