How it all began 

One of my first memories, as a 5 year old, was sitting in my father's studio and drawing alongside him. He was an illustrator and graphic designer and his huge desk would dwarf me. After this I could always be found drawing, painting or collaging in my room. I would submerge myself in sketchbooks.                                                                                                                                                                       


Living in Somerset, surrounded by nature and flowers, I was spoilt for inspiration. During my early teenage years, my father was painting a series of endangered flowers. The way he gathered his references and produced his beautiful paintings was so interesting to me.                                                                                                     
 I had an amazing nursing and teaching career spanning 20 years working and volunteering in Australia, Thailand, Uganda and Ukraine. I feel very thankful to have been able to live in many cultures around the world. Over these years I always had a sketch book to collect my inspiration but it was in 2014 when I was pregnant with my first child that I really pushed my creativity, painting or drawing daily; I couldn't stop!
It was like I had opened a box of treasures and I wanted to explore and study every single one.
My passion for flowers, bright joyful colours and patterns soon shone through my work as I became confident in my own process and style. I studied pattern design through online courses, took workshops and went on retreats. I wanted to  keep learning and keep on creating!
Another passion of mine has always been people. I love connecting and sharing with others especially around art and wellbeing. I truly believe that everyone can be creative, sometimes you just need to be brave enough to give it a go. In 2016 I started running my own workshops. These really gave me a sense of joy in helping others to get inspired and try something new, learn new skills or simply connect with others again.
