Growing up in the beautiful countryside of Herefordshire, I am constantly inspired by the texture, colour and pattern of the rolling hills surrounding me. Being able to step outside the door with a paintbrush in hand ready to capture the ever-changing scenery gives me such pleasure. Exploring my family history of the area and observing old photographs has been an interesting way of making my designs personal and unique.
I love to use bright, contemporary colour palettes to portray the energy and excitement of a country lifestyle and enhance patterns. Being a natural pattern maker, I enjoy using a range of techniques to create my designs such as painting, drawing, mono-printing, collaging, screen printing, lino-printing, rubbings, etc.
