about me

Many of us have spent years dreaming of returning to the one thing that brings us joy, but continuing to sideline that passion. Like so many people, it was lockdown that made that shift for me. I had a wonderful career working with still photographers, but knew that it was time to concentrate on expressing my own artistic vision.
 
I am lucky enough to work in my garden studio, and can get stuck in experimenting with a mix of media, but particularly love getting my hands dirty with acrylics. The balance of line, mark and colour are my foundation and I am at my happiest immersed in new projects in the studio, exploring fresh media and techniques.
 
My work takes inspiration from the nature around me, from the beauty of UK gardens, the wild sweep of our countryside, the changing mood of the coast, to the particular fascination of the detail found in a single plant or flower. Vibrant colour and intense mark making inform my work, but above all, I love to express my fascination with the beauty of our world and to creat
e work that shares this gift with others.

My original pieces and selected prints are available to buy here. 
I look forward to sharing my artistic journey with you!
