“I have always loved to draw and what started as a hobby while studying Marketing at Lancaster University became a real passion and I was soon drawing commission pieces and selling my work. In 2016 I took the decision to pursue a long-held dream and become a full-time artist, in the spring of that year I was delighted to open my gallery in my hometown of Hawes.
With the picturesque views, vibrant communities and vast array of animals and wildlife right on my doorstep I am proud to called the Yorkshire Dales my home. There is inspiration at every turn and for that I feel very grateful. Working with coloured pencil allows me to show intricate detail and let the characters of the animals really shine through. I love the feel and control of drawing with pencil, the textures, vibrancy and detail I can achieve with this medium is like no other. "
