Story

I have always enjoyed drawing and creating, and explored many different mediums during my education, such as natural, plant material to produce ephemeral plant sculpture using dried flowers and mud.
At university I learned a love for photography while taking photographs of plants and the landscape for inspiration. Following education I began painting in a variety of styles, and continued drawing. I find that drawing grounds me as an artist, as I feel control and a connection with the work that I produce. My favourite medium is charcoal, coloured pencil, and photography.

I am currently available for commissions, working from my home studio in Perthshire. Please see my Etsy shop for any current offers or custom artwork. Feel free to pm me on Facebook & Instagram for artwork inquiries/commissions.
