☀️Freshly Created – click for my Latest Creation*☀️

Looking forward to sharing textile design techniques at my workshop on March 9th 2019 in Sheffield – find out more here.

“Art for inspiration.”

I’m an artist, illustrator with a travel and leisure Public Relations background, based in the North of England.

I love exploring new places, trying new techniques and finding new ways of enjoying life. These are reflected in my work and messages.

Major knee injury in 2015 led me to art and visual ways of communicating. Keen to communicate life strategies I have been developing skills for creating art in a range of media from animation to textiles. My learning goes on and you can see my journey develop here as I explore and illustrate beliefs, concepts for positive living, a less consumerist approach and enjoyment of all aspects of my life.

My favourite mediums are paint and fabric and  love to represent a positive perspective on life and the natural world. I love sunlight and the visual effects it creates and how it catches different textures and colours.

I share posts on Facebook and Instagram. My art movies are at my YouTube channel.

My journey to now…

I’ve worked in a number of fun careers. I taught children to ski in Austria, worked as a pool lifeguard, enjoyed fun times on the beach as a children’s holiday representative on a Spanish island and in sunny Cyprus.

I managed the press offices for three of the UK’s leading travel companies. As I explored the world I encouraged other people to visit new places and get fresh perspectives by writing and photography for travel features, leading press trips, hosting travel TV crews, and through creative PR campaigns, launching new airlines, flight routes, airports, cruise itineraries and technology to help find the ideal holiday.

Love of the natural world led me to fuel a movement in the travel industry to encourage reduction in environmental impact and to initiate more sustainable, socially responsible practices. This led to a project reducing the environmental impact and increasingly efficiency of social housing.

Along the way I studied many subjects Life Coaching, tai chi, photography, fencing, horse-riding, yoga and pilates; the list keeps evolving.

I’ve travelled extensively through my work in the travel industry but now home is my favourite place and the vibrant city of Sheffield and its stunning countryside are now home.

I continue to develop my personal practice but love to work on positive projects and activity to grow brands and companies and am finding ways of bringing my communications and visual art passions together.

Thank you for being here, I hope you’ll stay a while and find something that makes your heart sing.

Have fun
