  • Biography
Born in Manchester, I live and work in Scotland. I am a visual storyteller. My work examines the flow between people and nature. I draw from what I can see around me in the natural world and my inner vision to create a personal mythology. Feelings and stories are the catalysts for my paintings. I explore the power of wonderment and hope and seek to offer the viewer an opportunity for stillness and an awareness of the threads that connect us all.

I use a range of techniques, including pure pigments and natural ingredients to make my own paints and encaustic mediums.
