(Bristol, UK) She is a self-taught artist. Her work is informed by natural forms and patterns – spirals, fissures, branches, waves, plants, landscapes. But it is not about faithfully representing the natural world. It is about nature as it appears to her – inevitably refracted through the psychological, the political and the trivial. As she states, "as I observe the world around me relentlessly wounded by human activity, I try to capture a trace of its extraordinary beauty". She was awarded associate membership of the Society of Botanical Artists in 2011.
