My background in printed textile design drives the inspiration behind my artwork - a world of pattern on pattern featuring traditional florals, birds and nature painted into contemporary scenes of everyday life. Naturally, I look to fashion and interior styling as well as that of other traditional and contemporary artists and designers to create new ideas for my paintings.
Making the move to spend more of my work time focussed on creating art was a conscious effort to slow down and give time to the creative process since spending most of my previous career in commercial fashion and feeling like I had lost a connection with my own creative expression. I now feel a great sense of freedom in painting scenes of the prints that I once would have designed, and I'm enjoying allowing myself to let my ideas evolve and grow as I do.
I work in various mediums, including acrylic, oil, graphite and ink.
