I began painting plants in 1992 whilst recovering from illness and now paint in between working on native plant conservation in north-east England.
I am represented in America by Susan Frei Nathan and am a gallery artist at Forum Botanische Kunst in Germany.
I’m honoured to be an Emeritus Fellow of the Chelsea Physic Garden Florilegium Society, hold three Royal Horticultural Gold Medals (1995, 1997, 1999 (group)), and have work in the Hunt Institute and the Shirley Sherwood Collection.
