I am an artist, illustrator and all round creative person! I work full-time as a teacher and all the rest of my time is spent drawing, painting, collaging, sewing, designing and dancing!

As soon as I could hold a pencil I started drawing. My mother always joked that she could never give me enough paper as a child!

My degree was in Art, Design and Community Studies from Exeter University. I then studied to be a Primary School Teacher. I have been teaching young children for over 20 years and being surrounded by their colourful art and drawings definitely influences my work!

I have also taken a three year City and Guilds course in textile design and I continue to learn by taking many online courses.

I am from the UK but I have been living and working in Cairo, Egypt for the last ten years.
