The Jetty Gallery
"I am an artist & illustrator living on the Isle of Lismore. I am mostly influenced by the people & creatures amongst my surroundings & trying to capture glimpsed moments of interaction.
I work with acrylic paint, collage, pen & ink, or a combination of all.
I like to head outside with my sketchbook to capture colours,textures, shapes & landscapes & then work on these ideas back in my studio.
I studied at Manchester Polytechnic at the end of the eighties & achieved a BA [Hons] Degree in Textile Design. For a while I focused on knitwear design whilst raising a family & supplementing this with other work.
Latterly I have been designing for cards & to commission."
