She sells greetings cards, postcards, prints and homeware alongside work by other artists and also runs workshops. Her debut book, A Different Kind of Vision, is all about her artistic journey and will inspire budding artists this Christmas.

Christmas Coffee Bundle

Choose two 250g bags of Baristocracy Coffee and two delicious Good Tempered Chocolate Company slabs to create a Christmas bundle of goodies, perfect for foodies. We love the Columbia coffee with tasting notes of pistachio nougat, caramel and chocolate, and the Star Slab (with white chocolate stars set into swirls of creamy milk and white chocolate) is a great choice for a Christmas gift.
