I studied foundation in Art at Ravensbourne, then went studied a BA (hons) in Graphic Design at The Arts Institute Bournemouth. I have had a successful 20 year career in London as creative brand designer for both big blue chip multi-nationals to small businesses, both in design agencies and in house.
My job being to create campaigns, designs, logos, literature, event graphics - essentially bringing an idea to development and production. I’ve a keen eye for detail and advanced knowledge of composition and layout.
I've loved art and design all my life painting and drawing regularly. Since becoming a mother I set up my own business creative pet portraits and art prints. I regularly do art with my young daughter as think expression through creating is vital from an early age and it’s so much fun.
I'm new to teaching... but am personable, professional and keep to share my knowledge with others in a relaxed environment. I’m a good listener, and happy to work with all abilities and age groups and also with students looking for just art and design career advice in general.
Drawing and painting has always been part of my life since my childhood, experimenting and discovering new techniques and finding my own style. At present my own work is both fine art acrylic and mixed media based on canvas, wildlife and portraits being my main subject matter. With my digital animal illustrations are created using a Wacom stylus pen and pad directly onto computer and manipulated using Adobe CS Suite.
