"I am a scottish born illustrator, now based "up North". I have a BA(Hons) in Fashion design and have worked for 6 years in the greetings card industry with experience in designing for the charity and high street markets.
My love of all things kitsch, vintage and retro all blend together to create my unique style. When I'm not in the kitchen whipping up a batch of cupcakes I can be found in my trinket filled studio creating beautiful illustrations. I work in many different styles, my favourite combination being paints, hand drawn text, collage and stitch".
