I grew up in rural, southern England and studied at Art School in Farnham, Surrey. I have now spent longer here in Australia and live in the most idyllic area – the Sunshine Coast. I love the diversity here on the coast from the rainforests, hinterland to the sea.
I work plein air weekly as to connect with the landscape with multi-senses, and these play an important part of my work – mark making playful lines of bird songs and visual movements throughout. In my studio I continue with studies of banksias and natives, always referencing the sounds from the garden outside.
