To Go Within

Taking a step back. This collection started in autumn, a beautiful time for reflection and introspection. Going within and looking back at the learnings and experiences of previous works, blending techniques. Celebrating my love for colour and texture.


Field Of Flowers

As the years progressed (Covid) and we still found ourselves at home, I started to travel and distract myself even more through my art. Filling that growing need for freedom and calmness. Combining memories of walks in England, with short visits to nearby parks and my colourful garden. Embracing something timeless and placeless, yet recognisable.

Field Of Flowers

An ode towards the ethereal, magical tones and moods of nature. Exploring the boundaries between imagination and reality, abstraction and figurative imagery. Inviting the viewer to see more, and to look longer.



Originally started this collection in my back garden during Covid. Where I am normally drawn to abstraction, I found myself feeling a need for figuration, as if I was putting up boundaries against the outside world. I needed that definition of form and shape. I needed the limitation of figuration. Limiting myself, created more space in my head and in my heart. I could feel myself breathe again.


As I work on the garden
the garden works on me

Smell the flowers, feel the breeze, breathe in deeply and let your feet connect with the earth as you let the garden do its thing.

A Place Called Home

Feeling a need for togetherness and light. This is also seeping in to my work. Energy versus calmness, soft lines against rough textures. I’m hoping these works send out a vibration of hope, light and blessing.
