Hi, I'm an animator and illustrator. I live in Derby, England with my husband and four cats. Most of my professional work is created digitally so working with traditional mediums for The Sketchbook Project has been a joy!
There isn’t any particular theme in my book. I’ve been drawing whatever interests or inspires me. I’m often inspired by forms in nature and the human figure. Style wise, I’m a huge fan of fantasy art, comics and cartoons but also artists such as Francis Bacon, Salvador Dali, Frida Kahlo and H.R. Giger. I love making marks with a variety of mediums and experimenting with colour and texture to convey mood and atmosphere.
Some drawings are observational while many are drawn from imagination. Some ideas are fully formed in my mind before beginning the drawing, others start as one drawing then grow into something else as I draw. I like how the mind, hand and eye start making new connections as marks are laid down. You can discover images that wouldn’t have occurred just by thinking alone. I’m not that great at expressing myself through writing but I hope that people enjoy looking through my sketchbook and find it interesting, inspiring and perhaps relatable :) ⠀
