“With a main ingredient of sunshine, a therapeutic dose of nature’s wonder, a heaped spoonful of heartwarming colours, a delight of pretty details and a sprinkle of nostalgia, I make art to uplift and counter the negativity and darkness that we can feel in life.

I love exploring, trying new techniques and finding new ways of enjoying life. My favourite mediums are paint and fabric.

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 here as I explore and illustrate my favourite aspects of life.

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

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

I’ve worked in a number of fun jobs – children’s ski instructor in Austria, pool lifeguard, children’s holiday representative in Spain and Cyprus.

I managed the press offices for three of the UK’s leading travel companies. I encouraged people to visit new places and get fresh perspectives through 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 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 later led to a project reducing the environmental impact of housing.

Along the way I have studied flying, life coaching, tai chi, photography, horse-riding, yoga, ice skating and tennis.

The vibrant creative 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 some things that make your heart sing.

Have fun
