About the artist

I am a painter and printmaker working in Suffolk, drawing inspiration from the land and wildlife.  I grew up surrounded by wonderful artists, with family running a local wildlife art gallery. I studied fine art at Aberystwyth University and was deeply inspired by the rugged, dramatic Welsh landscape and seascape. I specialised in printmaking, concentrating on woodcuts and lithography. From the graduate show, I was chosen to exhibit in ‘Graduate 13’, an exhibition at the Millennium Centre in Cardiff. Now I share a garden studio with my Dad and show my work in a small selection of galleries and exhibitions. In 2023 I had paintings selected for the annual exhibition of the Society of Wildlife Artists, Mall Galleries, London, which I was thrilled to be a part of.

Starting with sketches and notes made on location, I use these as reference when developing finished pieces in the studio. All of the scenes that I have chosen to depict are locations that are meaningful. The landscapes are places I have discovered or know well and love dearly. Wildlife in my garden is also of particular interest to me; the more colourful butterflies and moths provide so much inspiration, alongside the bees, bugs and beetles.

I love being outside, observing and drawing these insects as they weave through the plants and flowers.  

When painting, I’m not trying to achieve incredible detail of a place or creature but more trying to find it’s character and vitality. The prints are developed through a combination of relief printing techniques, building up layers of colour. The inherent qualities of my materials are exploited to create dramatic and expressive images.
