Hello and thanks for visiting my website. First, let me tell you a little bit about myself. Having graduated with a degree in Business Studies (University of Birmingham) way back in 2002, I moved to London and worked in Trade Marketing for 7 years. I was lucky enough to be able to stop working when I fell pregnant, and subsequently enjoyed several years at home bringing up two small boys.
During this time, I moved to Norfolk and decided to retrain. I have always enjoyed art and regretted not taking it further at a younger age so decided to enrol on an online degree course. Whilst being slightly fearful of straying too far from my previous career I thought Graphic Design provided the perfect balance of art and business. I graduated last year with First Class Honours. During my final year, I found myself drawn more to the arty side of graphic design producing my own illustration for projects and assessments.
I work primarily in gouache across a range of subject matter although I am particularly drawn to food and room illustration. I can focus on just the illustrative element of your project or, as a trained graphic designer, I am happy to build this into the overall design of a printed or digital product. Bespoke paintings start at £75 depending on the complexity of the subject matter and the size of the finished piece.
