My work is inspired by my love for nature - from wild woodland plants to garden flowers, common birds to unusual insects. I enjoy showing the beauty there is in the world through my prints and like the idea of creating work that inspires people to take a closer look at the world around them.

I use my own photographs for reference for the majority of my lino and drypoint etched prints and really enjoy the process of 'translating' the images for printing. My only problem is deciding which of my many images to do!

I’ve been drawing and crafting for as long as I can remember and really love the process of creating something - it’s a form of meditation for me and, like many people, I find it to be both rewarding and therapeutic.

All my artwork is original - from creating the design, carving the lino or etching the plate, all the way to working with the inks, paper and press - each print is produced and printed by hand which makes every piece unique.

As you’ll see, I also create jewellery which I hope you’ll enjoy too.

Thanks for visiting and please do contact me if you have any questions or would like to commission a print.
