I’ve been creative from a young age and I draw because it makes me happier. My inspiration comes from a myriad of places including women, fashion, magazines, flowers, films and literature. Sometimes my drawings form a landscape of childhood memories. Through this process I get a sensation that I am creating something on the page from nowhere that represent me.
At the moment I am working on a series of drawings inspired by female writers and artists, botanical illustrations and quotes from books. I also enjoy drawing from magazines. I open a page at random and an image or a word pops up this time was Simone de Beauvoir’s quote that stood out.
The other day while travelling on the tube I noticed a woman sitting opposite was reading Jane Eyre when an old lady sat next to her. She said: ‘Oh that’s a good read’. Later at home I found a copy of the Bronte’s novel in my daughter room.
In my local bakery while ordering an oatmilk flat white I heard a woman say, while smiling that she had watched When Harry met Sally for the first time.
