An Artist Through and Through...

I have always had a passion for art and design. Nature definitely inspires me the most within my work. I love all the different shapes, textures, creatures, sounds and colours within it. Mountains and forests are especially a big inspiration as I have always felt more at home in the countryside away from the towns and cities.


"A picture is worth a thousand words."


My process is usually to start out with some quick sketches of ideas. Then I add more detailing and other aspects in pen or paint. Once thats done I experiment with a lot of colour schemes for each piece digitally, till I find something that feels just right. Texture is also important to me as I find it adds that little something that brings everything together at the end.

Based in Essex UK.
