original watercolour & ink illustrations


Soobaloo HQ is in a Suffolk market town; not too country and not too towny, but just right. I get my inspiration from my boy-heavy offspring (even though they are growing up fast), a technicolor 70s childhood, and the humour in the everyday. I draw and paint for pleasure, and sometimes send my artwork out in the big, wide world.

I've illustrated in publications for the BBC Proms and the London Symphony Orchestra, completed commissions for the charity Music In Hospitals & Care and Squelch Wellies and recently took part in author/illustrator Nina Rycroft's Picture Book Illustration Course.

I'm self-taught and always learning, and hope you'll find something in Soobaloo that speaks to you. Whether you are looking for wall art for the nursery or children's bedrooms, colourful party stationery or custom family portraits, Soobaloo has a range of hand drawn, hand painted illustrations that make the perfect gift: colourful fairytale-inspired prints, whimsical children's wall art, new baby gifts, greetings cards with a traditional, vintage feel or a unique art print for a special occasion.
