I have been drawing and painting all my life. I was born in Africa and spent my childhood in Zambia, Zimbabwe, Pakistan and England. My work has been strongly influenced by traditional and ethnic design. For many years I worked as an art director and graphic designer in print.
I now work from home as an artist, calligrapher and book seller. I belong to The Book Art’s Round Table in South Orange, NJ and enjoy making hand made artist’s books. The Beasties have been my main focus for a while now. They first came marching forth in several accordion style books which I later reproduced as hand made books. This was followed by a blog: http://beasties.tumblr.com/ where I draw a Beastie each day and post it. My store on Etsy sells my Letterpress prints and Tee shirts with beastie designd on them.
