How the PRAWN began!
artist and printmaker
I am an artist and printmaker, who lived in Singapore for 7 years, now living back in the UK. I trained as an illustrator at the City and Guilds of London Art School, specialising in printmaking particularly lino cuts and lithography.
When moving to Singapore seven years ago, I reconnected with my creative talent having been inspired by the vivid colours and unique light that permeate the natural environment of the island. Indigo Prawn was conceived after painting a friend a special image to remind her of her time in Asia. This inspired me to look at the unique Asian symbols around all around me. From this I developed my Lantern. Ginger Jars and Pineapple series which have since become icons of INDIGO PRAWN.
Now having moved home to the Uk I am embarking on a new collection using my love of Asia to inspire me.
My designs are mainly hand painted in ink or lino cut prints, with the images reflecting various aspects of the local Asian culture. My work is clean, simple and bright, underlining my love of colour.
