About me
I enjoy celebrating the extraordinary diversity of nature, its shapes and forms, as well as its bold, and sometimes unexpected, colour. My work is often mixed media, but the use of watercolour (alongside inks) features heavily - resulting in ornate and eye-catching pieces. My hand drawn illustrations depict all things botanical, animal, flora and fauna and having a background in textile design, the use of patterns feature quite often in my work. I love to depict nature and I am fuelled by a love of colour and detail.
