Working as an In House Designer in a Greetings Card company studio for five years, I then decided to go Freelance, enabling me to be able to concentrate on the styles that I love to do.
I sketch all my initial ideas by hand, and then scan in on the Mac, I find this creates more fluid ideas. Fond of creating unique interesting lettering, preferable to graphic Mac fonts, fun children’s age and character cards, and hand drawn line work illustrations.
I like to add a 3-Dimensional touch to my art, by way of adding sequins, buttons, stitching, or photography. A decorative edge is seen in my work, as I love colourful cheery patterns and textures such as wood, fabric and ribbons. I work well to a specific brief, and pride myself on a mind full of ideas, creating to an open briefing equally well.
Two years on, I love nothing more working in my studio with my lovable but enthusiastic puppy to keep me company!
