I am an Artist and Illustrator based in Worthing, West Sussex, England. I gained a Graphic Design degree at Bath Spa University College specialising in Illustration. I then studied for a PGCE in Art Education and taught Art part time while continuing to develop and exhibit my artwork. Recently I have enjoyed working on a variety of illustration commissions as well as teaching drawing and painting workshops for adults.
I love to sketch the seaside scenes and gardens of Sussex. I develop my favourite sketches into coloured images using graphics software and many of these are available to buy in my etsy shop as limited edition prints. .
I've had a very creative year so far with exhibitions and workshops at Colonnade House, St Paul's Arts Centre and Hut 34, East Beach Studios, Worthing. Thanks to everyone who has come to see my work or taken part in workshops this year so far. I continue to really enjoy teaching drawing and painting and have a couple of courses coming up in September; Drawing course at St Paul's Arts Centre and Extended Drawing Course at Coast Cafe, Worthing. I have a limited number of places left on both of these courses so if you are interested in findng out more please go to the workshops page or get in touch.
