And there is nothing more rewarding than feeling the excitement of producing a detailed animal portrait, and see it come to life on paper or through my textiles.

I moved to Cornwall in 2014, and my love of drawing and painting has now made me an established local Animal Artist, offering private Commissions. In addition I also produce homeware and kitchenware goods of my work at local craft events and on my website. So if you're looking for a private commission or the perfect gift, I'd love to hear from you.
