Underpinning my art is the need to establish a connection with the land. 


I'm seeking to understand the workings of the ecology of the landscape as well as human history with nature. 


My paintings are of wild plants, herbs, and pollinators. They are also about folklore and the interrelationship between nature and humans. Small bits of wisdom, poetry, and practical advice are written among the busy-ness of my designs.


Respect for the interconnectedness of the natural world as well as our own relationship with it is important to my own journey, and grows for me with every painting.
