I STARTED DRAWING WAAAAAAAY BACK IN THE DAY. BEFORE COMPUTERS, TABLETS AND IPADS WERE A BLIP OF DATA ON THE HORIZON. TRADITIONAL DRAWING WITH PENCIL AND PAPER HOLDS MY HEART.

I try to create work that holds a litle bit of magic. I obsess over tarot decks, adore ink - both tattoo and in it's luscious liquid form. I prefer tea over coffee, have a serious pencil addiction, love textured paper especially when combined with watercolour paint by the pencil, tin or tube. Last but not least, I think I'm hilarrrrious!

A two time cancer survivor the humourous often macabre, pop surrealism art movement, features strongly in both my head and in my art journals.
