Hi, thanks for visiting.  I hope you will leave a comment, good or bad, it's nice to know what people think.Here are some of my pictures, Im not very good at drawing properly but it makes me happy.   It is a dream of mine to be able to illustrate books, but for now I just make up my own books, especially scrap books with illustrations, which is very therapeutic.  I'm Pagan so nature greatly influences my artwork.  Also Ive worked as a playworker for a long time and Ive got to know a lot of children and adults with autism and other learning disabilities and spending time with them always inspires me to paint and create, I think it must be the chance to get a change of perspective on life and see things in a more mindful and sensory way.  Im 25 and I  live in Sheffield now with my husband Alex but Ive lived in lots of places; margate, hull, newquay, stowemarket, teignmouth, ipswich, barnstaple, cape breton in Canada, bangor in north wales, and sheffield for now but Id like to live somewhere wilder and more isolated.
