Inspired by the beauty of the natural world, my art and designs reflect a love and appreciation for all things botanical. Born in Shetland, the most northerly isles in Scotland, I grew up surrounded by nature, my father worked in conservation and my mother was a knitwear designer. A love for nature and design was a natural collision. Emigrating to New Zealand in 2005 with my young family I became intrigued by the exotic beauty of our native flora - this curiosity led to a diploma in Art & Creativity, then further studies in botanical illustration, surface pattern design and watercolour. My love for nature and design continues to inspire me and recently led to the launch of my first collection of textile designs inspired by the beauty of New Zealand’s native ferns. Over the last year I have been developing a series of botanical watercolour paintings which I'm excited to share for the first time during the 2022 Taranaki Arts Trail.
