About

Birds, biscuits and other sweet things...

I translate my love for nature into art by incorporating detailed hand drawn illustrations with digitally created patterns. This passion for wildlife, pretty tea sets and delicious cakes comes from a childhood growing up in Yorkshire; going on many beautiful walks in the Yorkshire Dales and visits to quaint country tea rooms, something that I still love to do at any opportunity! British garden birds in particular are a key part of my work, as I have cherished memories of watching them in my Mum’s and Granny’s charming gardens.

Since graduating from Leeds College of Art in 2009 with a degree in Printed Textiles and Surface Pattern Design, I have been drawing, designing and sewing in my Yorkshire based studio. My collection of illustrations and patterns for interiors, accessories and greetings cards are a quirky celebration of British nature, wildlife and tea room culture. These themes are all combined in my designs in a realistic yet whimsical way.

It is important to me to keep as much of my designs as hand rendered as possible, so the majority of my designs have been intricately hand drawn and painted. Inspired by books and Illustrators of my childhood, I adore traditional enchanting paintings and stories of nature that give British gardens a magical atmosphere. My designs are influenced by this enchanting portrayal of wildlife, and I strive to keep this playfulness in all of my work. All of the themes and colour palettes in my designs come from nature, and are a way of bringing the beauty of an English country garden into the home.

    Yorkshire lass with a passion for nature and yummy treats! Walks in the countryside for me generally involve getting lost following whatever wildlife I can find! I express my love of nature through my quirky watercolour illustrations and patterns.
