Mixed media ink and watercolour images of local architecture contrasting strong imagery with soft bleeding lines and vivid colour.

After studying Textile Art at university, I began to teach art but have always enjoyed producing my own work. I specialise in mixed media work, primarily vibrant ink and watercolour, which contrasts strong imagery with soft bleeding line and vivid hues. Being based in Manchester, but having grown up in Derbyshire, I takes great inspiration from both the dramatic natural beauty of the landscape and the solid architectural forms within and around the city. I offer a bespoke service, in which customers can order artwork depicting a building with personal meaning for them. House and wedding venue portraits are particularly popular. I lives in Stockport with my husband and children, and currently divides her time between teaching and producing my own work.
