  • Biography
In an age where the digital enforces a hurried existence and the idea of nature has become a tamed commodity, I paint to understand the value of the wilderness: to reawaken our slow and essential ‘mountain time’.

Through my practice, I visually narrate my own experiences of the landscapes I have visited to create a world that is bathed in imagination but is no less of a reality. I bring stories from the outside, inside, using the space in painting as an invitation to our wilder world.

My work is a gentle reminder of earth: her mud, her water, and her creatures- all of the things we seem to have forgotten in a city made from placing pebbles.
