“I am beginning to develop a language of immediacy, working outside and relinquishing control to the elements and found materials: drawing with ink and grass while lying quietly in a sunny meadow, listening to nature, surrendering to the moment.

I have spent 12 years slowly developing my practice, controlling my environment and choosing pin sharp pencils, ultra-smooth paper, the right light to see and capture the things I want to share. Seducing you into my world and asking you to look a little closer at what I have noticed, always informed by my time outside as a gardener, a walker, an observer.

I’m a Collector and my studio is reminiscent of an old school nature table, reminders of my walks and the things that catch my eye. Delving into my craft roots I explore tools and techniques, sometimes for the sheer joy of solving problems. These sit in the studio waiting for their moment in the spotlight, catching my eye as I work.

But always I return to the quiet observations, moments in time delicately captured in graphite as the season dictates.”
