I have been passionate about art and design from a very young age and constantly covered my parents' house with drawings at an alarming rate aided by copious amounts of blue tack! My school reports were frequently disparaging of my bold use of colour however, not to be deterred, I continued through A level then on to the Suffolk College of Art where I fine tuned my skills alongside studying art history.
This set me firmly on course for a professional career in the creative sector, working in both photography and the textile & fashion industry for many years before starting my own design and manufacture business.
I have always looked forward to the day when I could return to my fine art roots and enjoy drawing and painting purely for pleasure and The Sketch Pad is the realisation of this much anticipated dream.
I look forward to sharing this great space, my knowledge and enthusiasm with you!
