In late 2014 my husband and I were living on opposite sides of the world, and one night after a Skype conversation about drawing as an activity to help me sleep, I found some scrap printing paper and grabbed a pen and started sketching. I was 26 years old, working in the health and fitness industry, I was pretty unhappy with where my career was heading, and I had no idea I had any artistic talent.
What began as completely random doodles to help me sleep lead me on a journey of creative experimentation which has now become my sole focus.
I have combined a shared passion for animals and creating beautiful things to paint custom Pet Portraits and wildlife art. I draw inspiration from the natural world and will paint or draw anything that grabs my attention. I love to capture the little details and individual character of the animals I paint.
When I'm not painting Pet Portraits I'm discovering what shapes my personal artistic style and learning new painting and drawing techniques to better capture the beauty which inspires me.
