I work mainly with “traditional” (hate that word) media; pen and ink, acrylic paint, other mixed media. I like the energy of hand drawn, hand painted illustration. It seems more.. I don’t know, tactile maybe. However, I’m working on my computer skills and am able to edit/provide images digitally using Photoshop and Pixelmator.
When I draw for myself, I draw the things I’m most interested in. Buildings, machines, animals (especially sea animals – they’re so weird), the sea, boats, strange people in cafes, autumn trees… all those things. I’m drawing more and more lately.
I live and work in Edinburgh, where I studied for my HND in Illustration at Edinburgh’s Telford College (useful) and my degree in English Literature at Edinburgh University (less useful). Here’s my little studio (and my not-so-little dog, Daisy):
