Since the age of 11 Di has lived in a little village off the Pembrokeshire coast called Marloes, it just happens to be minutes away from one of the most beautiful beaches her toes have ever sunk into sand.
Like her wonderful Mum she has a love for drawing animals and as soon as she was able, she picked up pencils, sticks or brushes, anything she could find to doodle with.
One of her passions is to travel, she constantly has the desire to move about and explore, but she finds one of the best things about it is the fact it makes her appreciate her home and all its beauty. The landscape and all that dwells amongst it is what keeps her heart situated here.
Keeping things quirky and full of character is how she works, hiding little narratives within each illustration. So have a browse and watch out for those cheeky puffins, they get up to no good!
All illustrations are hand drawn from scratch, finished in watercolour, inks and fine liner onto acid free textured paper. Some of the illustrations are collage to add extra depth. The finish pieces come in an off white bevelled mounts. Some images can be framed on request. Di is also happy to chat and take special commissions, so if you fancy a cheeky puffin in a particular setting or several seals swimming amongst the sea urchins then feel free to contact her to make arrangements.
