Botanical Illustrations

I have recently moved to Wivenhoe.

I am primarily a self-taught artist. Although, after finishing my degree in Zoology, I was awarded a place at Hornsey College of Art to study scientific illustration. Finances prevented me from taking up the place and I began my professional life as a scientist - undertaking research in Radiation Biology.  


My love of art never left me, however, and in later life I was able to combine art with my scientific background when offered the opportunity to study Botanical Illustration, working in water colour and pencil. This complements well my other passion and occupation - that of garden designer (see www.greenfuse.org.uk). 

I sell my paintings, undertake commissions and also produce my paintings as prints and as cards.
