Belfast is a great blend of history and heritage meeting an influx of modern trends and ways of thinking. In many ways still up and coming, the city has a burgeoning cultural life with pop up shops appearing in which to try new foods or buy beautiful, handmade crafts. A staple of city life is the availability of a pint and a friendly face to share it with - Belfast people love a good 'yarn', especially when it's a chat with a visitor!

I'm a recent graduate with a degree in Illustration trying to draw for a living! I paint mostly in watercolor and my favorite things to paint are ladies with attitude, pretty clothes, and nature. I try to empower women through my art and I hope to get into the fields of fashion illustration and children's books! When I'm not painting, I'm working retail, going to thrift stores, and watching anime. I'm honored to be featured on Cut Out and Keep!
