I work with Oil Paints, Watercolour and Ink and occasionally add mixed media such as sand! I carry a sketch pad and pens and my iPad Pro for Illustration whenever I am travelling so I can get as many ideas down as possible.
Recent travels have taken me to Iceland, The Isle Of Harris, Northumbria, Lundy and Bardsey Island, Barcelona, Lisbon, France and many more!
I have been working as an Illustrator for the last four years and love doing both Art and Illustration alongside each other.
I have been painting abstract landscapes for 9 years now, ever since I went to Iceland for the first time and saw the incredible light, shapes and colours of the sky and land in the south. Following that trip I spent the next year travelling to remote and wild parts of the United Kingdom and creating work from those trips. Every piece of work I do has a suggested vast expanse of sky and rugged land. My colour palettes are usually in blues, greens, browns, whites and yellows and I paint with palette knives and brushes.
I work almost completely digitally on my iPad Pro. It’s incredible how detailed and versatile the brushes are now, it’s like having an art shop on your iPad! I love to work with mixed media watercolour and textures. I illustrate and design for editorial, album artwork, products and art licensing and for bespoke projects. I have also done a few children’s books.
