I have always loved to draw. But a lightbulb moment happened when driving along my local high street, observing the vibrancy and activity of a community -shoppers and parents getting from one point to another; pathways crossing and intersecting, given context when placed against recognisable shops and schools. I realised that this passing of daily life is something that myself and many others can identify with. Through my illustrations, I try to capture elements of such moments.
