BOTANICAL ART/ CERAMICS/ ILLUSTRATION
Following a course in horticultural design, I was self-taught as a botanical artist, and went on to teach botanical art at RHS Rosemoor and other adult education venues, as well as writing for online microscopy magazine Micscape. I wrote the book "Drawing and Painting Plants" for publishers A & C Black in 2006, and previously won 2 RHS Gold Medals for botanical painting. My natural history and microscopic illustrations are in RHS collections and have been requested for use by international scientific institutions. I provided illustrations for the Honda Spring/ Summer advertising campaign of 2011.
As a horticultural designer, I illustrated both my own designs and those of other landscape gardeners, with AutoCAD and fine hand-drawn plans, as well as winning a Gold Medal at the National Amateur Gardening Show for an interior garden design.
I produced digitally printed transfer patterns for
ceramics,and designs for embroidery, music promotion
and book covers.

general illustration work, can be viewed at
