I like to use irony and humour in my stories, sometimes even a bit of nonsense, which I enhance with the use of limited palettes of bright colours and the mixing of digital and traditional techniques such as printmaking.

 

I take my inspiration from patterns and textures, vintage images, books, films, people, art, travel and everyday life. Sometimes I look for inspiration for my characters from abstract forms and shapes that I see around me, especially when I am after a pinch of quirkiness.
