'When I finished my studies I had intended spending two weeks of every month painting and two weeks singing - music is the other big love of my life - but things don't always work out as planned. It wasn't until 2004 that I rekindled my passion for painting, turning to large scale canvases having previously done illustrations for my music CDs and children's books. I developed a particular interest in children's cartoon style illustration with an emphasis on movement, colour and fun. I now combine these principles in my large scale figurative works whilst sketching landscapes using pens, watercolour pencils and pastels.'
