About Me

 I’m an illustrator from Bristol. My main medium is digital art but I also work with ceramics and screen printing.

In 2020 I was really struggling with my mental health whilst working for a large company and decided an 8-7 day was not healthy for me. I quit my job and started my own small business as a pet sitter as I have always worked within the animal industry. Being able to set my own hours and pick my own clients removed a great deal of stress and allowed me to start prioritising my mental health and doing what was best for me. I have always used arts and crafts as a method of therapy and in February 2021 I decided to start sharing some of the drawings and crafts I had been making. 

At university I picked up the nickname Slinky which is a name I have always been fond of, so Slinky Sketches was born. 

I have had my account open for little over a year now and in that time my style has changed, I have discovered what sorts of projects I am most passionate about, I have been inspired by other Illustrators at events, I have opened my own store and moved out of the corner of my bedroom and into a beautiful, bright art studio that I share with my bestie. 

My work follows the themes of sex positivity, self love, body positivity and mental health awareness with a heavy dash of puns added in for *spice*. I enjoy making designs that spread happiness and make people feel better about themselves. 

I have had a small collection of work featured in an exhibition at the Centrespace Gallery in December 2021 and I hold an open studio every first Sunday of the month to give people a chance to check out my and my friends' most recent creations. 

I sell art prints, original artwork, mirror artwork, ceramics, illustrated mugs and I am currently working on screen printed clothing and ceramic jewelry. 

I have big plans for the future of Slinky Sketches, I have lots of exciting things in the works and cannot wait to see what 2022 has in store for me.
