I create art in honour of wild & wonderful nature


- raising awareness and funds to help with its conservation

I come from a nature and craft loving mum, so its no surprise that art, in some shape or form, has been my life with nature the inspiration in my fine art career. Trained at the Berkshire College of Art & Design I spent over 20 years in the Graphic Design industry culminating in a Creative Manager role at First Choice Holidays.

"But then I wanted out of the rat race"

And in 2002 realised a longterm dream of coming to live in Spain where I transferred my energy and skills to fine art. Since then its been a journey to combine my 2 great loves - art and nature - with my growing desire to live gently on this planet.

Enter the small task of building our Earthship eco home!

Since moving into the earthship in 2014 my art has taken on a whole new life and personality. The majority of materials I use are upcycled or natural just like our home. This was of major importance to me, I really believe in

"being the change you wish to see in the world."

Using what I have, upcycling, eco friendly paints and processes are all things Ive investigated and experimented with over the years to find a way to express myself without being a burden on the planet.
When I walk out into nature I almost have to wear blinkers as my heart becomes overloaded with the sheer awesomeness of it all, usually the small details grab me, the tiny flower almost trodden on, the curve of a leaf, recording these in my art brings me a sense of peace knowing that I'm capturing a beautiful moment in time to be cherished.

Conveying that same peace and beauty to the viewer in an eco friendly way is a main goal for me.

An ever evolving life and process

During the two years it took to create the Art with Intention series of works, as well as being a peeling off of layers to find my artistic voice - my soul - it was also, and for me just as importantly, an exercise in sending positive energy into nature.

An energy that Im hoping will, in some small way, help with its protection. With this in mind I use positive intention techniques that I learnt from Lynne McTaggart. In 2008 I joined Lynne and thousands of others across the globe in Intention experiments that were being scientifically monitored. It was an amazing experience with amazing results. I also taught drawing classes based on the drawing on the right side of the brain techniques pioneered by Betty Edwards.Youve probably heard artists talk about entering the zone or being in the flow. When they achieve this theyre accessing the right side of the brain or ideally a fusion of both left and right modes of being. I decided to try and extend this zone to include the positive intention techniques Id learned. Ill be writing more about it on my art blog, subscribe to learn more.

Yes please, I want to learn more

   

Be the change you want to see in the world
