“I love getting my hands messy with mixed media and just seeing where the design leads me. It helps me get lost from the pressures of my marketing job.  I’m inspired by old bohemian style designs, resulting in my own style of informal hand drawn illustrations layered with collage and geometrics in bold colours. As the daughter of a welder, much of my drawing style is also inspired by the scroll work in wrought iron gates that I watched my dad create when I was growing up. I particularly enjoy creating bold designs for the home interiors  and clothing markets.”
