Travel loving Scot with an eclectic creative mind. I love being busy creating commissions, designs and artwork for my clients. They can be anything from patterns for throw pillows to an illustration for iPhone accessories. If I'm not in the studio, I enjoy knitting especially woolly hats or I'm getting to grips with running my redroadstudio blog, Pinterest, Instagram and Facebook page - deep breath!!
