I am a freelance illustrator and pattern designer, living in Derbyshire, England. I have always loved art, and as a child spent all my spare time drawing, painting and making crafts with my sister. I draw much of my inspiration from my love of pattern, nature and animals.
My favourite subject at school was art and I decided that this was the career for me, so I went on to study Foundation Art, followed by BA Illustration at Loughborough University. Shortly after graduating in 2012, I joined Inspire Art Licensing and began my career as a freelance illustrator. Over the past eight years I have sold and licensed my designs to a range of different clients around the world. I have enjoyed working on a variety of different products including greetings cards, gift bags, stickers, gift wraps and fabrics.
I mainly work digitally using Illustrator, Photoshop and Procreate, but I also love to work traditionally using watercolour paints and lino printing.
Most days you'll find me working on my latest designs from my small home studio, with a cup of tea and my two cats Rollo and Floki to keep me company. When I'm not designing I love spending time with my family and friends, being outside in my garden, or crocheting!
