I am an artist and printmaker based in Edinburgh. I am enchanted by the natural world and feature illustrative botanical forms in my work. I use intricate line detail, vibrant colour and a repetition of motif to create limited edition prints, designs and patterns.
Ideas for new works begin to grow when I am out collecting on walks or in my own garden. I love to gather branches, leaves, vegetables, flowers and fruits. Working directly from life, I closely observe their colours, patterns and shapes in my artwork. I print my work by hand at Edinburgh Printmakers Studio and primarily work in intaglio and screen print.
Joyful and illustrative, my work is concerned with the beauty and value of the natural world. My influences include historical botanical plates, Modern pattern design and works from The Arts and Crafts Movement. Most important is my inherited love of nature and treasured library of identification guides.
