I am an artist inspired and uplifted by the gardens, countryside and coast of Kent and East Sussex, in England. My work attempts to evoke and preserve those feelings of well-being and peace that time spent in nature induces. I make my work using a combination of printmaking, painting and intricate cut paper collage.

I love being outside; walking along footpaths, on country lanes and through gardens. My almost daily walks through the gardens and countryside of Kent and East Sussex inspire and inform my work as an artist. Something about the shapes of plants just speaks straight to my heart.

I have been fortunate to work at Sissinghu​rst Castle Garden, as artist in residence. I visited the garden often and made work which celebrated the seasons, along with the planting, structure, beauty and history of this fascinating garden. In the future I will be returning to Sissinghurst to gather inspiration for further pieces of work, as I feel I have only just touched the surface and I am drawn to continue ​my exploration of this wonderful garden.

I am also developing my work in a more personal direction; telling stories about my life through the plants, people & places I encounter.

I studied BA Textiles and specialised in silk-screen printing, at what was then The Surrey Institute of Art and Design (now UCA Farnham), I also have an MA in Drawing from Camberwell College of Art, in London.
