I am an artist and designer situated in Cheshire, UK. I currently part-time as an in-house designer in the fashion/textile industry. I am currently working on building my personal portfolio of work, after gaining more time to focus on my artwork. My style is, and has really always been, geared towards realism. I always strive to to inject personality and depth into my subject matter, and as I paint I endeavour to bring something extra to the image. I love to paint all types of subjects, from portraits to landscape. Currently I am working on a set of nature themed oil paintings, based around my references across Cheshire and England. I work in both traditional and modern medias. For my canvas paintings, I use oil paints on a canvas board, which I work on in my home studio in Cheshire. As an addition to oil painting, I also create digital paintings using the Procreate app on an iPad Pro. This allows me to mimic the motion of painting, but means I am able to work faster (and it’s a lot less messy!). I like having the option to play around with different medias of painting as I believe it all contributes to understanding myself more as an artist.
