I am an emerging mixed media artist from Bristol. My work, which ranges from drawing and painting to graphic design and printmaking, reflects my love for bold design and striking colour and I am heavily influenced by the great local street art and music scenes that my home city is famous for.
I am also inspired by Bristol's diverse mix of cultures and the sights and sounds of urban life and am a self-confessed doodler - my unconscious scribbles often finding their way into my finished designs.
I am self-taught and enjoy working with a variety of mediums. I love experimenting and learning new techniques and have recently developed a style that has enabled me to combine some of the design characteristics of screen printing, stencil spray painting, collage and sketching in order to digitally produce some new, multi-layered giclee prints.
I recently became a citizen of Barbados (my husband’s place of birth) and I love to seek inspiration from this amazing place whenever we get the chance to travel there (see photos below).
I was an official artist for the 2018 Gromit Unleashed 2 sculpture trail which took place in Bristol when I painted ‘Marshall’, a larger than life fire pup, on behalf of the children’s show Paw Patrol.
I also designed and painted a Shaun the Sheep (King of the Carnival) for the 2015 ‘Shaun in the City’ trail and PIG-e (the robot pig) for the 2017 Henson pig trail which took place in Gloucester.
I exhibit at local art trails, have an online store with Not on the High Street and have just started to stock some of my greetings cards and prints locally.
