I am an artist and writer by trade.
I make small-scale mixed-media drawings that utilise fine lines and a particular attention to detail. There’s no grand theory or objective behind them, other than a wish to depict a slice of everyday life, or storybook nostalgia, with contemporary zing – be it a shimmering tone or three, an experimental mix of colour, or a fine neon edge.
I try to draw every day, setting aside anything between 20 seconds and a hour. My tools of choice are fineliners, colour felt-tips, soft watercolour pencils, and ordinary gel pens in metallic, glittery and neon hues. I also work with graphite pencil, Conte pastel, and cheap biro: its ink has a beetle-like iridescence that I love.
I specialise in lively, yet delicate, images of food, plant life, objects of sentimental value, woodland scenes, and local architectural features that aren’t necessarily stately, but have a certain aesthetic: Edinburgh, Oxford, Princes Risborough and Haddenham to name just a few.
