With a professional background in Architecture and Graphic Design, I am drawn to beautiful form and shape, reflecting my love of anything and everything. Old books, vintage textiles, antique postcards and packaging are among some of the things that influence my work. Also working as Sketchbook Squirrel, my Blog, Facebook page and blip journal is home to my work as a botanical artist.
Now working as a self-taught botanical artist, I find the complex yet simple beauty of plants both challenging and satisfying to reproduce. Choosing to work in both graphite and pure watercolour offers me the flexibility to capture the full exuberance and richness of colour or follow a pared-down approach for a more structural form, allowing each subject to shine.
