Nature is a passion and a profession for me. I have always loved wildlife and being outdoors, I studied biology at university and have worked for 20 years in the nature conservation sector.
During that time I taught myself to draw and paint, and in the last few years I started to sell my art.
I like to paint on silk, as the technique creates such vibrant and unique images. I also use watercolour, and have done watercolour illustrations for four children’s books about wildlife.
I live in Cumbria, and have traveled widely in Europe, Australia and New Zealand, enjoying the wildlife at home and abroad which provides inspiration for my paintings.
I hope you enjoy my art and writing, and please feel free to contact me, comment on my blog posts or share my website.
