Born and raised in Berkshire, I grew up surrounded by a loving family in a beautiful market town. I flew the nest in 2013 and lived in a wonderful Spa town where I studied for my Illustration BA Hons degree at the University of Gloucestershire. Upon finishing my degree, I moved back home and began the exciting journey of being an Illustrator.
When creating pet portraits I take my inspiration from their owners. Hearing them talk about how much their pet is loved and funny little things they do gives me an idea of their pets personality and I enjoy relating this through their portrait.
I thoroughly enjoy writing and illustrating Children’s books. Creating imaginative stories which can help children to understand their feelings and how to deal with them is where I like to concentrate my work. For example, my book “Just Ride Through It”, focusses on helping the main character overcome his feelings of anxiety when going to school.
