Faces fascinate me. They’re our identity, convey who we are, hold our stories, a smile or frown. They’re the gateway to our sensory world.
When I paint people I wonder - Who are they? What are their secrets? What do they shield? What are their thoughts? What makes them who they are? So many questions, curiosity and intrigue. Did I mention, I love painting faces.
More can be found here. I love seeing a persons face light up when they see their face in paint. That gives me joy and that’s what I want to share with you.

I adore every aspect of food. I once was a keen food photographer but illustration is a much more fun way to express my personal food story …….. plus there’s no leftovers to be tempted by.
Shared here is a selection of recipes that I make on repeat at home. They’re mostly simple and quick to prepare. This is fast food my way. See my instagram for full recipes.
Thinking, remembering and reconnecting. Reflecting on happy times is good for the soul and who doesn’t need more of that?
This is a selection of watercolour stories illustrating moments in life valued deeply by the people within them. They capture life in watercolour and celebrate the joy of paint. You can see more here
I love painting peoples stories. If you would like me to paint your story contact me here.
Quick sketchwork and scrawly illustrations are the scaffolding of my art practice and are best done without intent. See more of my sketchwork here
Fashion + Figurative
“Ethical is the new black” ~ fashion the change
Yes, fashion is fabulous but fast fashion is ruining our world, so I choose to paint outfits that inspire me, weaving my own beautiful stories into their watercolour threads as I go.
I tend to paint elegant and unfussy pieces with an emphasis on shape and form. One day I’ll turn the illustrations that fall from my paintbrush into physical creations for myself. But until then, I’ll continue to paint.
There are no rules or boundaries when I illustrate fashion and form, except to work fast, have fun and make a statement.
