“Hi I’m Pia,

Since my earliest memories I have enjoyed creating works in all types of media from, paper and textiles to stone. I’m a Dorset girl through and through and consider myself very lucky to live on the edge of Wareham Forest in amongst it’s rich wildlife, heaths and woodland habitats. Travelling to family in Africa and exploring the outdoors locally has provided much time to observe and develop a deep love of animal life.

As a form of relief from the anxiety of college work some years ago, I began doodling using a fine ink pen. After many hours, my first drawing came to life. I thought little of it other than it was a doodle that took probably 20 hours to create but people wanted to buy my originals. It was here that I started to develop my own unique concept, capturing the personality of my subject through line and pattern work. The application of this style I have found to be limitless and undertaking unique commission work is something that I always thoroughly enjoy.

I hope you enjoy my work.”
