I am an artist and printmaker who likes to find beauty in the everyday - some weeds on a road side, or a cluttered windowsill can set off a new collection. I treasure both the eccentric and the ordinary, inspired by collections of found objects and natural forms; I am fascinated with the structure and design found in flowers and plants, often redrawing the same plant many times over to explore the subtle variations in its form.
After leaving school, I attended Art College and then worked as a commercial designer in wallpaper and textiles in both London and Paris before becoming a full time artist in 2008.
My work has been exhibited in many major shows including the Royal Academy Summer exhibition and The Royal Society of British Artists, I have also exhibited in America and Japan.
