About me
Hi, I'm a London based freelance painter of nature, travel and small things. Through vibrant colour and shapes, I aim to capture the gap in the busy lives of people – of solitude and quiet meditation. Clients include Underpinned, Alltrue and Bloom Magazine, and I also do personal paintings.
