Bio The path that led her to this point
I love drawing and have always had a passion for it, ever since I was a child.
When I was 16, I went straight to Art School in Middlesborough (North East England) and studied Art and Design for 2 years.
I eventually specialised in Fashion Illustration, which lead to a brief gap of travelling before I came back to art.
I went to study my Graphic Arts Degree in Liverpool, the art school of John Lennon.
My final project saw me back at Fashion Illustration, and my work was picked up by a publisher.
My drawings were published in a fashion illustration book and I was featured as 'one to watch' by Creative Review.
After bombarding my marketing material to everyone from Stella McCartney to TimeOut Magazine, I received my first editorial commission from Tank Magazine and TimeOut soon followed.
I was invited to Stella McCartney's studio where they commissioned me to do a drawing of a Robert Crumb T-Shirt for Vogue.
In 2005, I moved to London and was commissioned by Selfridges London to hold a small exhibition of my artwork in their newly decorated lab cafe.
The success of this show lead to more freelance work in their windows department, as well as work for the store windows at Selfridges Manchester which was a wonderful experience.
As word of mouth of my work travelled fast, I became a full time illustrator and have been illustrating ever since.
