’’I am and always have been drawn to the natural world; the delicacy and strength of it. I learnt to paint in watercolour at a very early age in my mother’s studio. She was a watercolourist and mixed media artist, and I enjoy working with watercolour for the same reason as I enjoy the natural world - for the delicacy and strength of it’’.
