Astra

Having spent most of my adult life wanting to paint and draw full-time but actually being involved in jobs that did not interest me, I finally decided to change my life in my mid thirties.

I quit my sales job at the time in 2014, sold my home and decided to travel the world for inspiration. After spending time in Europe, Nepal, the Far East and then hiking from Mexico to Canada on the Pacific Crest Trail, I found myself back in England with a new passion for wanting to create. I became a full time artist in 2018.

As a self taught artist with no formal training my journey and the evolution of my work has been very surprising and exciting so far.

I focus on creating work with fine detail, drawing with pen and painting with ink. Inspired by nature I love drawing wild animals.

I am happy to work on bespoke commissions, message me for more information if you would like me create something just for you.

Based in Suffolk.
