I grew up in the North East of Scotland, surrounded by the beautiful hills, fields and woodlands. As a child, many rainy days were spent scribbling and sketching or playing with bits of clay in my mother’s pottery studio.

I went on to study ecology at University and worked in environmental education and conservation. My passion for nature, wilderness and the outdoors still plays a significant part in my life & hugely influences my work.

I now lives on the beautiful east Kent coast, with my family and dog Bunsen.
