Rainy days were always my favourite when I was a little girl. At school, they were the days when we were allowed to draw in our ‘Rainy Day’ books to our heart’s content; or at home, my sister and I would spend hours making up little crayon worlds on paper. Being from the drizzly fishing town of Grimsby, I was lucky enough to experience many of these rainy days.
My work is created with a dip pen and ink, and watercolour. These are my absolute favourite mediums; I love their unpredictable nature. In a very digital world, I find traditional methods comforting; but I’m excited when the two worlds can be merged! I’ve been blessed with a big imagination and I want to raise a smile with my illustrations. I love details, and I want people to return to what I’ve drawn and see something they didn’t see before.
I now live in Bournemouth with my lovely husband and pup Arnold, and when I’m not drawing, painting or collecting picture books, we are off exploring the world’s curiosities – and eating yummy food.
