I paint images of the natural world –maps, botanicals, abstract landscapes and mixed media collages.
I received a BA in History and Theory of Art from Sussex University in England. Upon moving to the United States, I studied botanical illustration in New York and, during a five-year residency in Tokyo in the 1990s, studied traditional Japanese painting. I like to incorporate the highly decorative Japanese approach to nature in my own work.
I have been featured in exhibitions organized by the American society of Botanical Artists, including shows at Longwood Gardens and the New York Horticultural Society. My work is held in the permanent collection of the Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation at Carnegie-Mellon University.
