About

I've drawn for as long as I can remember and it's my passion. I'm obsessed with detail and tend to work with old-fashioned dip-pens, ink and watercolours, using the same lovely old tin of paints I've had since I was a student and am very attached to - I just keep topping up the colours!

My love of drawing led me to study at art school for a few years and, as I grew up in Suffolk, I did a foundation course at Ipswich School of Art. This was a wonderful time for me as the emphasis was very much on drawing from life, so I was very happy! I went on to St Martin's School of Art (now Central St Martins) in London where I studied Graphic Design specialising in Illustration (again, lots of drawing!).

I've been working as a freelance illustrator ever since.

I work from my spare-room studio in the lovely county of Somerset. I live in a village situated on a ridge above the Somerset Levels and Moors, an incredibly atmospheric area, full of wildlife and lovely walks.

Most of the prints I have for sale here in my shop depict tucked away places in Somerset.

I have my giclee prints made locally by the lovely team at Pennybatch Gallery, a family run business based just outside Wells in Somerset. Pennybatch Gallery are members of the Fine Art Trade Guild and are specialists in fine art giclee & greeting card printing and finishing (and
in picture framing!).

If you have any questions, or just want to say hello, please feel free to get in touch.

Thanks!
Julia
