I am an artist and illustrator based in South Manchester. I'm inspired by my surroundings, be it my beloved city of Manchester, other wonderful places I love to visit, or simply my garden and surrounding countryside and the wildlife within it. I create lively and contemporary artwork using collage and mixed media, often visiting charity shops to search out old books, maps and dressmakers patterns to use within my work.
