Welcome to the Queen Christina website, the archive of my creative work which was mostly done pre-2014.
I am a published illustrator and author, textiles and fashion designer, and musician. Trained in textile print design at Winchester School of Art, I went on to study horticulture and landscape design at Cannington College (Somerset), and became a botanical illustrator and botanical painting teacher.
The work on this site spans approximately 15 years and shows material for projects including the 2011 Honda worldwide advertising campaign, as well as my own book Drawing and Painting Plants, and collaborations on several fashion textbooks - which I was thrilled to be a part of.
“Queen Christina” was a personal creative project of mine incorporating music, arts and fashion, compiled from 2011-2014 and drawing on the historical and alternative arts scenes.
I then took a break from Art for about 5 years (my "years in the wilderness"), but am now back on form!

I currently reside in London.
