Having drawn all my life, in 1999 I took evening classes to learn watercolour, and more recently a foundation degree in Illustration at Petroc College in North Devon.

Most of my work is based on nature; plants, rocks and small animals. I like things that intertwine and love texture. I enjoy digging into the shadows and picking out what I find.    Inspiration comes from the most unlikely places, it could be as simple as a colour combination or a pattern that has grabbed my eye, or maybe from a conversation that sets off a train of thought.  It might be a simple scene that calls to me to capture the mood or a happy accident that stops me in my tracks and screams out for me to investigate further.
