I have enjoyed drawing, painting and other art related activities for as long as I can remember. My Mum will tell you that I love a blank page, even from very young a brand new colouring in book was considered “finished”.

At school I studied as many art-based subjects as allowed, experimenting with all types of art, but I always had a penchant for drawing still life or from a photograph, especially animal and nature studies.

I continued along a creative vein in my working life, mostly from a marketing and design aspect working within small businesses. When my two sons started school I began providing freelance marketing and graphic design services to local businesses. I even discovered some free time to get back into my pencil tin, and since then have drawn almost every day.

I live in West Berkshire with my husband and our two sons. When I’m away from my drawing board you will find me running (or running around after the boys), cycling, or more often eating!

I feel so lucky to have rediscovered my passion for drawing animals and birds, and with lots of encouragement from friends and family, I have worked on numerous pet and wildlife commissions and I am enjoying every minute.

Please take a look at my gallery, I hope you like what you see.

With love,
