I am a digital and mixed media artist with a love of Dark fantasy, Grunge, Steampunk, surreal art and photography.
I live in the UK, close to the wild moors of Emily Bronte and the old town of Whitby, where Bram Stoker penned Dracula. I am influenced by artists such as Hieronymus Bosch and Mark Ryden, the fantasy/sci-fi books of China Mieville and Korean horror films.
Originally trained in graphic design I did not pursue this as a career and it was over twenty years before I picked up a paintbrush again. Fascinated by the wonderful array of mixed media products available I began to experiment and now feel I have to create everyday. Though only beginning to make art again in 2015 I have gone on to teach myself Photoshop, digital art and digital compositing and using all forms of mixed media.
After coming across some very old photographs of Native American people, I began to work on transforming them digitally. Currently I am also working on a body of work comprising the indigenous peoples of North America and the animals they lived alongside.I am also deeply immersed in learning the history and cultures of the First nations People. This work can be found at my Etsy shop TribalSpirits.
Artists Statement.

She feels that digital collage offers endless possibilities for experimentation and creativity.
