My work explores the cycles of the natural world, in particular letting go and regeneration, abundance and decay.
From the street trees of south London to Suffolk’s ancient oaks, I am fascinated by trees and their secret language. I am interested in the role of forests in combating climate change. Fibromyalgia gives me an acute sensitivity to external stimuli, which allows me to pick up the nuances of my surroundings.
My work invites the viewer into a world that is both familiar and unfamiliar through the use of unexpected palette, mark making and perspective
I am a member of ArtCan and of the VAA and an associate member of the Society of East Anglian Watercolourists.

I identify in the tradition of the outsider artist, but I was brought up in a house of colour and design, and have always thought in pictures. My father was a designer in post-war Britain, and my grandfather, was a Hungarian watercolourist.
I credit my father and grandfather as my teachers as I grew up with the paintings around me. My father came to London fleeing from the Nazis, and his family were murdered in the Holocaust before I was born.
