Flowers are dropped into a vase. I do not attempt to tame them, but to capture something of their essence, a moment of their ephemeral beauty. Working experimentally in acrylics and watercolours, I become absorbed in mark-making, working to describe the spirit of the plant.

I originally worked as a Footwear Designer in London, after gaining a degree in Footwear and Accessories Design from Cordwainers College at London College of Fashion. Before this I went to Herefordshire College of Art & Design. A much anticipated return to Herefordshire after nearly a decade in London gave me the opportunity to develop my artistic practice.
