I began printmaking in 2008 after a twenty-five year period of abstinence from Art whilst pursuing a career in Information Technology.  In 2020 I made the decision to study art full-time, and now work using a variety of media including pencil drawing, ceramics and photography.​

My key sources of inspiration are botanic life-forms as well the development of Botany as a scientific discipline and the beautifully illustrated written historical texts that have been created as a result.

I am also fascinated by interactions between nature and historical architecture, be it an overgrown walled garden, a dilapidated glasshouse or a floral stone carving on the wall of  deserted crumbling mansion.
