I am an artist and photographer based in Devon. My passion is for flowers and the Devon countryside. This passion has now extended to the coast, I am so lucky to be near the Jurassic Coast with its wonderful scenery.

The floral photographic images are mainly still life, many using dead flowers which seem to hold a unique beauty. My paintings inspired by the Devon countryside are mixed media using acrylics, inks and watercolours, occasionally oil paint.

All artwork is available as limited edition prints.
