I am a British illustrator/artist and am based in beautiful Munich, at the base of the Alps in Germany. I specialize in the whimsical fairy, fantasy and nature inspired art for children and all children at heart.
My first sources of inspiration, which would later decide my career choice, were found in the countless books my mother read to me and my brother when we were little. From the colourful Beatrix Potter's animals adventures, fairy tales and nursery rhymes and and many more. Movies, music and nature also play and important role in transporting me into other worlds and getting my imagination running wiild. I always admired the fantasy and fairy art of Arthur Rackham, Pre-Raphaelites and other artists from the Golden Age of Illustration that found their inspiration from folklore and myth from all over the world.
Whenever i draw or paint, it is my wish to be able to send people back into their past, memories of magic and their own childhood dreams and bring a smile to their faces as well as using colour to uplift the soul and convey emotions.
Over the years I have created and sold work to people all over the world, through private commissions, merchandise sales in my Zazzle Shop or originals and signed prints in my Etsy Shop and licensing my art. It gives me a lot of joy to know my art brings joy to homes in various corners of the world and I greatly appreciate the support I receive, which in turn motivates me to create more.
My main mediums of use are watercolours and coloured pencils but i like to experiment with various different mediums to achieve the effects i need.
