About

Every picture tells a story...

Since I was a little child I have always illustrated stories, sketched from life, painted and drawn. I can't hold a pencil without doodling little pictures! My first career was as a scientist, but even then I ended up in a field that involved drawing what I saw down the microscope. I have also been sewing both practical and decorative items since I was a teenager.

After a career break to have kids I decided to make time to get back to doing more art. So I joined a life drawing class. Then somebody said 'why don't you go back to school and do art'. So I went to the local college and did a two year catch-up course equivalent to A level (not sure what that is in the US I'm afraid). And when I'd finished that, my tutor wagged her finger at me and told me I HAD to go to university and study illustration...

So another six years later (I studied part time) I graduated. I am as fascinated by entertaining and storytelling through pictures as ever, and I have also fallen in love with printmaking. I am always experimenting with ideas and techniques.

I find designing and making greetings cards just as rewarding s some of the bigger pieces - a little work of original art that anybody can buy for a few pounds (or dollars) and put on their windowsill. So come and have a look!

Custom and personalised orders

Want a different colour of an existing item? This is often possible for greetings cards, though it will take a little longer as I will be making your card specially.
