I love to scribble. And I do mean scribble as I like my drawings to be messy and a bit weird. My favourite things to draw are quirky situations and slightly odd looking people, closely followed by children, trees, pebbles, tightrope walkers, chip wrappers, geese....wait. Maybe I don't have a favourite.


Inspiration can come from anywhere but I do think that the best things are right under your nose. The mum in the high street using a multipack of crisps for her baby’s pillow. The lady in the train station, hell bent on telling you how many times her husband goes to the toilet. Drunk people, show offs, and expressionless children. You just have to have your radar tuned to the right frequency.

I have a particular fondness for 1970s craft magazines, coloured pens and not-so-accidentally spilled paint.

I studied Fine Art at the University of Sunderland and have been drawing ever since, squeezing a museum career in between. I live on the Kent coast with my husband, daughter, cat, dog, chickens and a coffee habit.
