Tell us a bit about yourself
I am a UK born artist living in the fun City Bristol. I studied an illustration degree and loved it. I have been a practicing illustrator for over 13years now.
How do you approach a new project?
I try and make sure I’m in a good relaxed positive mood and I start to brainstorm possibilities and boundaries on a sheet of paper. I look for reference if I need it, and I make a plan of action working backwards from a deadline.
Tell us about your art- where do you get your inspiration from?
I would describe my art as whitty, bright and fun. My ideas extend from the nonsensical world we live in, and the wonderful way we communicate. I love word play and making the simple more simple.
What is your primary medium of choice?
Screenprinting- I love its immediacy and flatness.
Looking back at all your artwork, which one is your favourite and why?
At this moment it’s probably ‘House’ I am so pleased with its colour palette and basic primitive shapes. Mostly though I love the idea behind it. Each image is based on a common House shape – that changes slightly to illustrate a popular house phrase..I’ll start you off..House/Bird House/Beach House…can you guess the others?
What kind of bike do you ride?
It’s a Ridgeback Works well with a child seat on the back!
Why do you ride?
I like the independence and no traffic jams in the City! Plus its free and I can get to the studio home and back super quick.
What fun places have you travelled with your bike (local/international)…where are your favourite places to go by bicycle?
I loved cycling around Berlin, we hired a bike, its such a large City but Im pretty sure we got to see most of it! I love a cycle and a family picnic in near City Bath.
