I am a fine art illustrator and mainly work in black ink on white. I am based in beautiful North Cornwall and I do a range of work but prefer animals. Born in South Africa I have a special affinity for African animals. My favourite subject at present is our black and white English pointers. I started drawing as a child inspired by my mother’s black and white artwork. Having not actively drawn for some years, I have recently more seriously taken up my art, and my portfolio is growing by the week.
When I am not drawing I am a business consultant as well as joint director of Proper Living, an online curator business enhancing and developing Cornish artist’s online presence, as well as disadvantage South African artisans. Proper Living represent a wide and unique range of products from exclusive selected Cornish and South African supplier partners. All Proper Living profits are reinvested back into the communities that develop these products for us and fair trading and the environment is at the heart of our business model.
Is detailed, hand drawn and captures the true personality and character of my subjects. Although I have done some work in colour (watercolour paint, pencil etc.) I prefer the clean attractive lines of black ink on white. (Although ink can be pretty unforgiving when you make a mistake!) I also actively create in a digital media format, further enhancing my artwork for use in all manner of ways.
I do commissions and sell my artwork on a range of products. I can ship my artwork to anywhere in the world and will gladly take commissions from international clients.
