Artist Profile

Yeah, it’s an odd name but these days I’m combining a life of painting and goats along with a radio show, baking and general mayhem.
Now, you’ll find me in the countryside, outside Maastricht, NL but it’s not always been that way. I’ve travelled and worked in various places and met a stack of really interesting people who continue to inspire me. Long may it continue.

How did I get here?

Firstly, thank you for taking the time to come and see me, it really does mean a lot.

I thought I would just give you an idea of how this has all come together. I've only recently come to painting, before that I was always convinced it was something I wouldn't be talented enough to do. Then one day an artist friend of mine started a workshop and I thought, well why not? Since then I've become a painting demon! I've always been a fan of colourful, abstract work and so that's the path I've chosen, whilst experimenting with various mediums.

I then discovered that people actually wanted to buy my paintings and from there I found I could have my art printed on to various products which then lead to creating surface pattern designs. This is where I take sections of my paintings and transform them into patterns to be printed onto fabric and wallpaper........yeah, didn't see that coming!

So there you have it. I have my shop that you can buy ready made items with my designs printed on them and another printing partner just for fabrics and wallpaper. You'll find all the links on my home page. Life really is full of twists and turns.
