Welcome to a bit of info about me:

I discovered at a young age I'm good at drawing, painting, sculpting, knitting, sewing, joinery.... I love to make things. 

I got into art school on merit; I was a young single mum and managed to complete Advanced Art and Design GNVQ and Foundation then went onto to a Cultural Studies BA at NSAD. This was during the 90's and completed 2003.

 Interested in Astrology? : Venus is my Akmakarka , I have a fire grand Trine in among a Grand Sextile including an Air Grand Trine.  

I have always studied Astrology and find it influences my work more and more. Ever since I was a child I have been fascinated by the endless oscillation of the universe.  This space will develop a stronger feel as it grows which will become clearer for visitors.

My work is inspired by vibrations; the harmonies of life.   I love to experiment with different mediums; always starting with a feeling.   My influences are an eclectic merge of  old school Klimt and Duchamp mixed with new synergies via mediums that have become available as I explore.  No door is closed, I just haven't opened them all yet...  

I do love analogue methods mostly, however, I am growing my digital abilities within Adobe software having recently achieved professional certificates in Illustrator and Indesign.

Currently, I am in the final throws of my MA in Illustration with Falmouth University.   It's a massive opportunity and giving me a structure to hone my professional skills going forward.  These are strange daze we are living in and this gives me a strategy to navigate them. 

I also have paintings pending using oil and acrylic, a plan to create a series of 12 twelve paintings; each symbolic of the 12 signs of the zodiac.  It has been done to death, just not by me....  So far I have the fire signs with Aries, Sagittarius and Leo Rising completed, although this is a diversion as it  is for the Rising sign in Leo not the Sun sign.  So much to do!

I'm sharing some of my designs via my Redbubble shop  I've named "Rumfluff".  Link below.  I love the way it enables art to be accessible to all via price and product range.
