I draw and paint very detailed illustrations using pencil, pen and ink or watercolours. In 2012 I started a two year Botanical Illustration Diploma in Chelsea and achieved a merit. Drawing has been something I have loved since childhood. I studied A-Level art and found my strengths lay in accuracy and detail. After finishing University I started drawing again and became interested in Botanical Art due to my love of nature.
I love painting fruits – particularly shiny apples and berries! I have sold paintings during Oxfordshire Art Weeks and have taken on a few commissions. I also sell greetings cards with prints of my artwork. In addition to the current exhibition I hope to have more exhibitions, get a good website developed to replace my blog and would like take on more commissions. I am enjoying this project so perhaps that’s a good idea for future business!
