I create all my artwork on the Abode Draw App on my iPad. This started from a need to be creative for myself and I would sketch commuters travelling on train journeys to and from work.  This has grown to commissions, a pack of healing cards and now a larger cast of animals. I love discovering the character of the animal as I draw and then finding the colours they sit best against. 

I strongly believe in affordable art and art being used in everyday life, so as well as prints I have always sold fridge magnets / badges and greetings cards with detachable badges.  This Christmas for the first time in addition to the introduction of coasters at the summer Childwickbury arts fair I am also selling tea towels and notebooks.
