I am a British illustrator/artist based around the idyllic Cotswolds, England. I specialize in the whimsical fairy, fantasy and nature art for children and children at heart.
My first sources of inspiration, which would later decide my career choice, were found in the countless books my mother read to me and my brother as children. From Beatrix Potter, to fairy tales, to so much more. My artistic inspirations include the likes of Arthur Rackham, Beatrix Potter, the Pre-Raphaelites and other artists from the Golden Age of Illustration.
Whenever I draw or paint, it is my wish to be able to send people back into their past, bringing memories of magic and childhood dreams to the forefront of their mind. When children see my work I hope it builds upon their already creative imaginations, and helps them see the world in a more colourful, magical way.
Over the years I have created and sold work to people all over the world, through private commissions, social media and on my Etsy Shop. It gives me great pleasure in knowing how many people get joy from having my work in their homes, and it is the main reason I keep creating each and every day.
