Being a professional artist is not something I ever considered as a possibility. Yet here we are! A few years ago I answered the call to “pick up my pencils and walk” and the rest as they say is history.

I enjoy painting animals and florals in my favourite mediums : soft pastels and watercolours. My inspiration comes from the living world: shapes and patterns, colours and textures. Realistic drawing refreshes my love for nature, inspires a sense of awe and wonder in the world around. Working on details helps me to connect deeply with the subjects – I always discover something unexpected!

I hope you enjoy looking around! If you would like to know more about the artwork, my creative process or just have a chat please get in touch.
