Welcome to my world! I am a mixed-media artist, creating original, heartfelt artwork in paint, collage and stitch. I am inspired by nature, the rolling hills, the rustic plots of my allotment, the birds that visit my garden - their stories of interconnection and spirit. The symbols I use in my work - sun, moon, star, tree, home - speak of our shared experience of the world and being human. I create art that invites reflection, connection and an appreciation for the wonders of nature.

I love to share what I do - I run workshops, both online and in person that nurture creativity. Each workshop covers a part of what I do - making sketchbooks, drawing with confidence, printing pattern - all inspired by the wonders of nature. I want you to come away from a class feeling empowered and excited about the potential of your creativity. Courses are for anyone looking to reignite their creative spirit. 

I hope you will stay and explore my site and that you find art that you love, and inspiration for your creative journey.....
