I am an artist based in London, UK. My paintings and prints are inspired by the natural world and I especially love to grow my own flowers on my allotment in South West London.

Each year brings surprises in the garden and I try to sow new varieties of plants.

I never tire of the joy and beauty that both native and non-native species bring. Flowers and plants are known to bring positive feelings and they can symbolise different things for every person.
