Day Dreamer Cat Whiskers
I was brought up in Northwest England and moved to London to study art at Middlesex University. From there, my career began in textile design; I was creating floral patterns for many major high street stores such as Top Shop, Dorothy Perkins and Debenhams. I began as an illustrator, by accident rather than design, when retailer Boots licensed some of my floral designs for use on gift-wrap. After a couple of years, I found that I had moved out of the fashion industry and became a full time illustrator, mostly for greetings cards and wrap.
I really enjoyed the freedom of working on a much wider subject matter. I still do floral designs from time to time, but now I am probably best known for cat, dog and Christmas images.
