About me

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"

I began drawing from a very young age. I was encouraged by my mother and always had crayons, pencils and paints at my disposal. My sister and I were encouraged to use our imaginations. I have always been a dreamer and since I can remember I have drawn girls with funny little characters. Two characters recur frequently in my drawings birds and rabbits. Birds because I have always loved them, they are beautiful and fly with freedom. The Rabbit because I have had a stuffed toy rabbit since I was born, it use to be as big as me. It was literally larger than life and my friend.

I have always carried a little diary where I jot down ideas and drawing as they come to me. Even whilst studying Visual Arts and Digital Media I was always sketching these little characters, girls and boys in my diaries. Having explored many mediums including glass blowing, jewellery, installation art, animation and photography I have found myself drawn back to illustrating.

Only recently I decided to bring them out into the world. I'm currently studying graphic design and illustration and would like to continue drawing and designing well into the future.
