Cupboard Favourites



Comte Cheese


Having trained as a scientific illustator working primarily for the RHS and Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, I have always loved working with ink and watercolour, focussing on the wonderful and fascinating minutiae of the world around us. In 2014 I started to draw and paint cheese - nothing like drawing mould for a living! - this rapidly extended into drawing a wide variety of food and drink as people buying my work loved the nostalgia that goes hand in hand with a favourite gin or cupboard staple, a childhood memory or family favourite. Inkyjinks has now been a successful venture for a number of years with a plan to take it further into cookery books and other types of foodie outlets.


My inspiration has always been the objects around us, the mundane yet striking pieces that we can often take for granted. Although I have always had a love of natural history, I also find inspiration in very graphic work such as the labels you find on food products. It has therefore been very easy to combine those two passions, drawing more natural foodstuffs such as cheese and vegetables as well as the man made items.


My predominant medium is ink using a traditional draughtsman Rotring pen. My subjects are drawn in pencil first, then the ink work is completed before a wash of watercolour is put on. I make my own high quality giclee prints using an Epson Surecolour P700 with pigment inks on archival matte paper. I sell mounted prints of my work in a variety of sizes, as well as framed pictures at the festivals I attend.
