Frequently asked questions

How do you make your art work?


A pinch of creative curiosity, mixed with analogue and digital wizardry.

I usually start by creating the outline of my subjects with ink pens. I've never been able to draw, act or behave straight so as a result my lines are very unruly. And I love it!
The colours and patterns are influenced by my mood and whatever inspires me at the time. I partcularly just enjoy cutting and collaging random items, patterns and observe textures. there are times where people have caught me baking and freezing paint! So anything really goes...

I scan or photograph the patterns and outlines and attempt to blend them together, using photoshop and illustrator (or whatever fun new software/editor I can find) as much as possible. I try to find a balance between "OUW my eyes are hurting" and "wow, I can't take my eyes off it!" It's an art.
