About

Beautiful prints celebrating the places you love

I am a graphic designer and illustrator from Bedfordshire, creating original modern prints with a vintage feel.

My work celebrates the local landmarks, the quirky buildings, the places that shape our everyday world. I try to find settings that are dear to people, that have meaning and relevance and then I get to work sketching. Whilst I take huge influence from the travel posters of the early 20th century, I have tried not to lock myself into a particular style or colour palette. Instead I prefer to let the venue dictate the tone.

Castle Hill lends itself generously to a dark and brooding atmosphere, whereas Port Macquarie is literally bursting with sunshine. Verrazano–Narrows Bridge in New York is packed with detail and colours, yet Sandy Heath Transmitter is reduced to its bare components. Every place requires a different touch and I really enjoy this aspect of my work.

I have a degree in Media and Communications from Wolverhampton University and I completed a Foundation Course in Graphic Design at Bedford College. I was an in-house graphic designer for the RSPB for many years and I continue to work closely with them now as a freelance designer.

I have a studio set up in my conservatory where I have a MacBook Pro, an LG monitor, Apple magic mouse, Wacom pen, an Epson printer plus plenty of pens, pencils and paper. I am married and have two beautiful children and I feel extremely lucky to be able to fit my work in around their school day. They really are everything to me.

Other interests, hobbies and obsessions include: yoga, piano, cowboy boots, Yorkshire Tea, dancing, sewing, karate, Hugh Jackman, coffee cake, Nashville, handcream, plants, poppadoms, my Moleskine diary, lip balm, early nights, Ovaltine, lavender and kindness. If I could squeeze all the above into one day, I'd be a very happy lady!
