I have had a keen interest in art for as long as I can remember. As a child, my Christmas list was full of art supplies, not toys. Throughout my primary school years, teachers were aware of my artistic ability, while other children were drawing dots for eyes and an exaggerated curve for a mouth, I was already drawing little hairs sprouting from an elderly mans nostrils!

I continued to draw as a teen, feeling more passionate about art, I passed all of my art exams with flying colours.  I hoped to go on to college for further studies, then to university. I was given the choice of a steady job upon leaving high school, knowing the sensible choice was to give up the dream of becoming an artist, I began working in website administration.

In 2010, moving out of my parents house, I came across all of my art materials, and felt inspired to give it another go. I began with portraiture, and have never looked back. Showing my work on social networking sites, the feedback and interest in my work was phenomenal. This continued to grow, by 2012, I had a well established page online, with a following of over 5,000 people around the world.  In 2013, I left the job I had chosen over a career in art, and decided I didn't want to look back years down the line and wonder "what if?"

I am now a 22 year old self employed artist. Working on a commissioned basis. Offering realistic graphite portraits, touching angel baby portraits, vibrant pop art style illustrations..The list is never ending.. I have never been happier, and feel blessed every day that I have been able to turn my passion into my job. There's a saying " if you love your job, you'll never work a day in your life" I truly believe that. I have no idea what the future holds for my art, I can only hope that the incredible support, fan base and my waiting list continue to grow.  I am constantly inspired by fellow artists and their work, trying to better myself. I have a two year old daughter, who seems to be following in my footsteps. I hope to show her that being happy, and enjoying what you do are the most important things in life.  I am still very young, and I cannot wait to see where my art takes me in 5, 10 ..Even 20 years from now...What an exciting thought!
