Art Journaling is about making marks, collecting ideas and using instinctive colour to remember and express life and experiences past and present.
I worked as a professional illustrator and graphic designer in London after that I moved back to Winchester to where I first studied. I now enjoy using all my collected skills with my ever growing stacks of papers and inspiration to follow a visual journey of self discovery through my art journaling.
5 things about me
I have slept in Windsor Castle
I spent a week on a desert island
I have walked down Fulham road in a wedding dress
My art is on the other side of the world
I can't ever just eat one biscuit!
I sold my first piece in Harvey Nichols whilst studying fine art in London. My work has appeared in Tatler and I have worked as a published illustrator and desinger before moving to the The Alps where I created bold colourful art series reflecting the dramatic changing seasons in the mountains.
My work is layered and colourful. I admit to a hoarding habit of strange, quirky and beautiful images some over 50 years old to use in my collages and art jouranalling. I now live back in Winchester where I call home.
