Throughout my life I have always been creative, enjoying art and design which I decided to pursue as a career. Following A-levels, I gained an HNC and HND in Graphic Design & Visual Communication which has lead me to become a qualified graphic designer with over 15 years experience, mainly in print design.
In 2010, I left my job with Bristol News & Media Ltd where I had worked for 14 years. Most recently I was head of the Graphics and Scanning department for the group. My decision to leave was made following the birth of my twin daughters in 2009 to enable me to spend more time with them and also allowing me to work for myself as a freelance designer.
Aside from my full time job, I have over the years produced a variety of freelance artwork including book design, postcards, infographics, leaflets, posters, cartoons and much more.
I have won a variety of awards for design including Designer of the Year in the Press Gazette Regional Press Awards 2007 and Front Page of the Year in the South West Media Awards 2008.
