Born in England in 1983 and grew up in Nottinghamshire. I studied art and design at New College Nottingham and went on to graduate from a BA hons in Textile Design at Nottingham Trent University in 2008.
Since then I have worked as a freelance and inhouse print designer. I have also been working on my own paintings and developing my artistic style. I live in Stockholm, Sweden.
Over the years I have worked with flowers, colour and pattern in different styles and these are themes still inspire me creatively. I love seeing in the day to day these aspects surrounding me on walks with my dog, in both urban and country settings and also on journeys that I take. As I have worked as a print designer pattern and colour are important elements of my work which seem to take a natural place in my paintings.
In terms of materials that I use to create my painting’s I use a mix of media, watercolour, gouache and collages on both paper and canvas. I adore artists that are bold and use colour, pattern and contrasts in their painting’s.
