I moved to Devon 8 years ago and have fallen in love with living by the sea. It has helped to inspire my artwork and jewellery design. However, with my previous home being Brighton I love colour and character and bright splashes of luminous colour can be found in my recycled, bonded and stitched textile pieces. Complementary colours such as vivid orange and turquoise feature in my work. Drawing has always been my first love and I am studying an MA in illustration at the moment. My drawing style is playful with loose marks and lines, I often use my non dominant hand to increase the movement and fluidity within my mark making. I like to explore social issues in my illustrations or the human condition. However this work is always inspired by colours and patterns I see around me.
