About

How did I get started?

I've dabbled in art since I was a kid. I grew up with an Aunty who is an amazing artist, and a Grandma that had paint running through her veins. I never saw my Grandma without her sketch book and wherever we were, she would be sketching. I used to adore sneaking into her studio and running my hands along the paints and brushes, and examining the strokes in her paintings. She had he sketch books on a shelf and if I was feeling brave I'd cheekily pull one out and flick through. She tried to "teach" me to draw a few times but although I was eager, I never quite got it. My Grandma and my Aunty were just so darn good it was disheartening.

Botanical Art is my absolute favourite. Before my Grandma got sick and died I had decided to try my hand at that. I went up and visited and she showed me the basics of watercolours and let me use some of her Winsor and Newton Artists watercolours, and beautiful Archers paper and it actually made a world of difference. She sent me home with a list of things to buy, and I got started drawing my leaves. She got sick shortly after and died 6 weeks later. I was lucky enough the inherit her watercolours, a and a ton of brushes, a tub of paper. I used the materials to grieve, and it started to work. I developed my own style, completely different to my Aunty and my Grandma and that's how I started.
