I am currently studying Illustration at the Cambridge School of Art. I am interested in all forms of illustrative and narrative art, particularly Artists' Books. I've also recently started Abandoning Art which is excellent!
Don't look at my website if you're waiting for an art swap from me! I usually post pictures so it will spoil the surprise :)
I am also a writer, with a few published short stories and a drawer full of unpublished novels.
I also love my garden, my two rescue dogs and my four chickens . I have two teenage children and live a cottage in a typical English village.
I listen to rock and classical music, especially choral music. Most recently I have become interested in folk music, and I have a sneaking affection for brass band music as my son plays in a band.
As well as Illustration I am interested in textile art and have made several quilts and wall hangings. I do a bit of rather bad knitting and have experimented with feltmaking.
I read loads. SF, Fantasy, Crime Novels, Historical... and also Young Adult fiction as I try to write for that age group.
Not really worked this out yet! Watch this space as I think of more things to add.
