Artist's Statement

I am a digital artist, specialising in drawings of people and animals; real, fantastical, autobiographical.

My aim is to transform the subject into something new - to create something, someone, that could not exist without me.

I draw almost exclusively on the iPad, allowing a greater level of nuance than traditional media permit, using ever-advancing digital software as a tool to produce multi-faceted, multi-layered, hyper-realistic images. I endeavour to create something visceral, fleshy, tactile; something that becomes more real than the original subject.

I have been a professional artist living in Thanet for over 20 years, working in several studios and experimenting with many different media before pursuing my own practice. Having originally studied Fine Art at KIAD Maidstone, to eventually achieving First Class Honours degree in Graphic Design at CCCU, I have used my unique and varied artistic journey to reach a level of excellence and originality.

Combining traditional draftsmanship and digital technology allows me to create artworks that connect with the audience in a uniquely personal and disturbingly confrontational way.

Drawing on my passion for women’s rights, environmental issues and social justice, my art is my voice, and I have a lot to say.
