I have always drawn inspiration from the natural world.

I have been fortunate to live in very beautiful and remote areas, having spent the first half of my life in Snowdonia, and later moving to Ynys Enlli (Bardsey Island), where I lived from the age 13.

This enabled me to pursue my love of drawing wildlife and I spent much of my time outside, observing and painting,; seals, seabirds, seascapes, shorelines; later developing an interest in moths, butterflies and flowers.

For the last two years, I have been working with watercolours, and using wax to create layers of colour in pieces depicting vegetation.

My subjects tend to be botanical, and I like to focus on small things people often miss; insects, small flowers, grasses.

How artists approach their work fascinates me; I like to see the marks they make on the page, the rough sketches rather than the finished piece.

The use of line is also something I find interesting; how a subject can be depicted by a single outline, and the way an artist uses their pencils and tools. I have learnt a great deal from working alongside fellow wildlife artists and learning from their approaches and experience.

I now live in Rhiw, on the Llyn Peninsula, and continue to be delighted every day by the hidden things in nature.
