Tricia spent her early years in South Africa watching her mother doing pastel portraits of interesting local characters. She decided at the age of five that she would become an artist. After returning to the UK Tricia gained a degree in textile & fashion design at Manchester University.
Five years ion the textile industry followed when she started freelancing from her thatched cottage on the edge of the Cheshire countryside. Thanks to a large well stocked garden Tricia loves to work with flowers, fruit and nature in general.
She is also known for her versatility and has gained a wealth of experience working on greetings cards, ceramics, house hold and fashion textiles. All her work is handcrafted in watercolour, pencil, pastel, pen & ink and includes cut paper creations too. Her clients include most of the top brands and outlets including Noel Tatt, Museums & Galleries, Mint, Hallmark, UK Greetings, Marks & Spencer, Boots and WHSmith.
When not ‘colouring in’ Tricia can be found socialising with her family and friends as well as enjoying her weekly ballet class.
