about


I am a multidisciplinary artist with initial training in illustration and a lifelong interest in English literature and folklore.

The patterns and rhythms of nature have always captured my imagination. I am particularly interested in times of transition, and it is the emotions such instances evoke that I seek to express through the pieces I create.

I am currently working towards an MA in Fine Art at University of Hertfordshire where I am investigating ways in which I can bring together work in diverse media to communicate my emotional connection to the natural world.
