"I was born in Morecambe, by the sea in Lancashire, and after many years of travelling I came back to this area to raise my family.
My grandad was an artist and I spent most of my younger days sitting with him learning to draw and paint. I spent every available moment immersed in my sketchbooks !
This passion for creativity led me to gain a degree in Illustration and Design at Staffordshire University and from there I went to work within the gift and fashion industries.
I now work as a freelance illustrator / designer from my studio at the back of our home. I produce my illustrations using a combination of traditional and digital collage techniques and like to mix textures, type and imagery to create playful and fun art.
I also like to sew and create appliqué and textile designs and have written 2 books on cross stitch and needlepoint designing.
My husband tells everyone that I draw fairies for a living....! I tell them that I have the best job in the world !"
