Inspiration

I am inspired by: quirky characters in everyday life and eavesdropped conversation; snippets of literature and sayings by wise people; animals and folk motifs, particularly those in Scandinavian/Nordic tradition and design; accidental colour combinations and of course  by many other illustrators, writers and designers.

I’m an active member of Pinterest so if you’d like to find out what’s going up in my world, head over there and have a nosey through the boards and follow me. From hairstyles to screen prints, photographs to knitted jumpers – Pinterest is a useful tool as I research, gather images and  develop ideas.

I may post photos on here from time to time as well.
