For as long as I can remember I have been surrounded by the world of fantasy. As a child I was immersed in fairy stories, Enid Blyton, J.M. Barrie, C.S. Lewis and made friends with many characters...fairies, goblins, brownies, elves infact all manner of little people and I spent many hours reading and drawing. My passion for the realms of fantasy has grown with me and I take inspiration from many things in life especially nature. My work is never planned....I just sit and see what evolves! I admire so many artists, my favourites being Brian Froud, Arthur Rackham, Jean-Baptiste Monge and Dulac and also many other OOAK artists I have had the pleasure of working with and made friends with along my journey in this rewarding art.
