You might find me peddling around Newcastle... looking a bit dishevelled, with pen on my face.

I love making my wonky, messy drawings into original, witty illustrations, products and artworks. I draw with bold line, collage and print to produce colourful responses to everyday life.

I’m unashamedly sentimental and try and keep objects alive, by recording them.

I like old books, charity shop treasures, netball, my bike, wildlife and eating cheese scones with strong coffee. I have two wildling children, two enormous rabbits, a temperamental goldfish and a messy old house.

I make for work commission and in collaboration with community groups. I help people doodle, draw, print and collage interesting, personal artworks for their environment and for printed projects and enjoy helping them solve problems through design.
