After graduating from uni with a degree in illustration, the thing I most wanted to do was to travel; so that is what I did first. I spent a good few years working and travelling my way around Australia, New Zealand, South East Asia and Europe, learning about the world and 'finding myself' as an artist. Through my experiences I developed my own style of creating and carved myself a place within the world of illustration. Upon returning home to Wales, UK, I had developed a new love for my homeland and so began my map-making quest, drawing and painting Wales and re-discovering all that I loved about it- the history, culture, heritage and beautiful landscapes. I have been drawing maps ever since and I love it!
