My story

My fascination with art and illustration began at a young age with the beautiful drawings in so many of my treasured childhood story books. I have dabbled with painting and drawing on and off since then. In recent years, the pull to create visual art has become stronger and stronger.

As a copywriter at an in-house studio, I was inspired by the talented graphic designers I was privileged to work with. At first I would just clear space on the kitchen table to draw or make prints but now I am lucky enough to have a dedicated work space.

The last couple of years have been spent honing my craft during my limited spare time. I have regularly taken part in the annual Inktober drawing challenge and am currently filling a sketchbook for Brooklyn Art Library’s Project Sketchbook.
