I am an Environmental Artist Living on the border of Wales, where I take my creativity outdoors in nature.

I love creative walks outside with a sketchbook in hand, to connect with the landscape on my adventures.

I work full time in the Conservation Sector with Woods and Trees across the U.K. Ive been working in the sector for 18 years on different Projects including Recording Ancient Trees and Restoring Ancient Woodland.

My passion is Art and the Environment we live in, combining creativity in the landscape brings my two passions together.

I create outside whatever the weather, incorporating the rain, snow or wind in my work is part of the experience. I am an elemental artist. You can following my creative adventures on Instagram where I share my creative techniques.

This year I will be leading Sketch Across the World 2021 on Instagram for the third year. Join The Walking Sketchbook wherever you are in the World on the 1st & 2nd May to sketch outside and connect with nature. This is a Nature Connection Adventure. You can find further information on how to join in on the Sketch Across the World page. I will look forward to seeing your sketches in May.
