Hello! Welcome to my portfolio of surface pattern designs and general random musings!
From the earliest moments of my life, on the great prairies of Canada, I have loved to create. Drawing and painting were more than hobbies, they were a way of escaping, expressing myself and bringing joy into my life. As time progressed I added sculputure, encaustic wax art, silver smithing and digital design to my repertoire of go-to escapisms.
I love working with bold colours and creating quirky images and designs that can be used as placement prints, illustrations or repeat designs. I go where ever my creative muse takes me, which can be anywhere really! From fantasy flamingoes to the depths of the ocean floor I'm intrigued by all that I see around me. Inspiration comes in many forms from music, movies and american muscle cars to the sea side, city and mountains. As well as the people in my life who show me great support and provide some pretty stonking ideas (the teenagers: Mac, Holly & Bene; the partner: Steve; the sister: LDA ; the fur-kids: Monty & Molly)
My goal is to bring a bit of light and laughter to the world and hope that my designs will give people a sense of enjoyment and intrigue!
Please peruse my work and enjoy. If you have any comments or queries please feel free to get in touch.
