ARTIST PROFILE


As a biologist and environmentalist with a deep interest in natural history, my main interest lies in exploring trees, flowering plants and the lines of the landscape.


My style of work juxtaposes long periods of observation with quick, light and instinctive responses, made directly in the field or in my Oxford studio.


Much of my current work is focused on the simple lines formed by elongating tendrils, unfurling petals, branching veins and wind-blown branches. Using mainly pencil and ink with touches of colour, my work explores growth, form and pattern in nature, often through series of related images.
