After 4 years studying at Art College winning numerous competitions set by companies such as Royal Doulton, Royal Worcester, Crown Wall Coverings and Sundour fabrics, I then spent the next 8 years gaining invaluable experience in all areas of design from artwork through to manufacturing at CCA Stationery.
My illustrative designs have since been used worldwide on all manner of products such as Greetings Cards, Gift Wrap, Product Packaging, Pottery, Jigsaws and Flags for major companies such as International Greetings, Nigel Quiney, Collisons, Paper Rose, Marian Heath and many more.
I have achieved great success for companies such as Paramount with the Costco ‘Card Shop in a Box’ and three ranges for Tri-Coastal which included the ‘Haute Couture’ range hitting record sales.
During the past ten years I have sold a lot of my designs through agents. But now I am very excited to be branching out on my own with help from Diane, a long term family friend who will be supporting me with all the Sales side of the business, leaving me free to be able to explore my creativity and reach Artwork deadlines.
I will be working from my pretty garden studio, drawing inspiration from the beautiful surroundings of the Peak District where I live with my husband David and three gorgeous little boys Max, Alfie, Theo and our cat Milly.
