Adventures with my brushes through a world full of colour, shapes and marks. I’m a Scottish designer, illustrator and visual explorer.
I am inspired by journeys, ingredients, country life and patterns in the landscape. My decorative style retains the hand drawn qualities adding value and uniqueness.
I specialise in capturing the magic and passion, responding to projects, place and commissions.
My artworks can be applied to all types of markets: Gift, Paper Products, Editorial, Wall Décor, Fashion + Interior Fabrics, Advertising, Wall Hanging or Murals. If it requires an artwork then I’m the person to design it.
I get to the heart of client’s needs by listening to, and discussing the brief, allowing me to visualise and create delightful designs. I have 16 years design experience. I graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design in 1999 with a Bdes Hons Degree in Printed Textiles Design.
If you would like to know more about what I can do for you, or if you would like to collaborate, commission or licence my artwork please get in touch.
