What I love most about being a freelance artist/illustrator is the variety of work & the projects on which I work vary widely from small intricate pieces to murals covering over 20 square metres! For example, one week I could be painting a mural in the hold of a Dutch ship, the next I could be creating illustrations for a nature reserve in Australia, designing signs for an eco-friendly garden at a field studies centre, or creating a nautical-themed arch and seating for a children‘s playground. With each new project, I look forward to the surge of ideas, solving problems in design and composition and seeing all the hard work come to fruition. It is also very important to me that the client is happy with the end result.
The nature of the project can often influence which techniques and approaches are the best to use such painting, pen and ink, linocuts, scraperboards and cut-art, digital artwork, etc. If you have an artistic requirement, please take a look at how to commission me or contact me to see if I can fulfil your creative needs.
My own artwork
I have created artwork to explore my creativity, some of which is available for sale in galleries, shops, exhibitions, craft fairs, etc. Favourite themes of mine are the natural world, such as wildlife and landscapes, as well as interesting local views. I use a variety of materials to create my work, which you can learn more about in how I work. My artwork that is for sale are mostly linocuts.
As well as my own artwork, over the years I have undertaken commissions for a large range of clients. Some examples of these commissions are:
- Illustrations for books
- Illustrations for magazines and newspapers
- Murals and signs
- Branding and logos
- Pet portraits
- Furniture makeovers
