Arteza and Albrecht Durer Watercolour Pencils and Indian ink, on 250mg mixed media paper.

30cm x 30cm


The sunshine through my studio window bounced off this humble shirt button, and made it look as if it was smiling. I found myself smiling back at it. Sometimes it's the simplest of things that give us the profoundest pleasures, and I wanted to capture and celebrate that fleeting moment.



I think the creative process is as important, if sometimes not more important, than the end result. I enjoy experimenting with many different creative media, often combining them in non -traditional ways, ranging from acrylics and water colour pencils, through to Indian ink, alcohol ink pens and metallics. I also do 3D crafts and large scale murals.

I am fascinated by pattern and colour, and find great inspiration in the natural world. I often work from my own photographs, experimenting with increasing colour saturation, to reveal hidden fluorescence and tones. I then try to capture these in my artworks. As part of my neuro-divergence, I also have chromesthesia; a form of synesthesia where you hear and see musical notes in colour, which is becoming a large part of my artistic practice.
