As far back as I can remember I would draw on any piece of paper I could lay my hands on, and always knew I wanted to be an artist when I grew up.
I studied art and design at Stockport College and went on to my first job as a trainee designer at a wallpaper designing company where I really learned about designing commercially.
I worked freelance designing for the wallpaper and home furnishing industries for many years using a wide variety of subject matter.
The skills I gained during this earlier period later came in very useful when I moved into designing for giftwrap and paper products.I joined Inspire Art Licensing in 2013 and have been there ever since!
I always enjoy doing detailed work and am always looking for new inspiration.
A few years ago we moved from the UK to the Greek island of Crete for a better, more laid back way of life.
Being more stress free helps with the creativity, along with the sunshine of course!
