About

Hello and welcome to my shop. I am an artist, illustrator and surface pattern designer based in 'The Potteries' the creative county of North Staffordshire, UK.

My artistic practice is grounded in the meditative process of painting. Often combining collage, acrylic and gouache paint to create textural, detailed compositions that are inspired by the simple things and slow, quiet living.  I am interested in our connections to home, heritage, seasons and the natural world, always seeking to capture an atmosphere of peace and harmony in everything I do; quiet, still moments in an otherwise chaotic world.

As well as selling my original art, ceramics, prints and cards here in my shop and on Etsy, I also freelance as an illustrator and surface pattern designer and am represented globally by Jennifer Nelson Artists Inc. With a decade of experience in this area some of my clients have included Anthropologie, Abrams and Chronicle Books, Amber Lotus Publishing, The Boston Globe, Canns Down Press, Timeless Treasures Fabric, Peter Pauper Press, Garnet Hill, Simple Things Magazine, Taproot Magazine and many, many more.
