I am a vibrant colourist
I paint the inner world of dreams, archetypes and pure energy.
Symbols emerge which speak the language of the soul – the moon, spirals, trees, cherry blossom, feathers, birds and women’s bodies in all their beauty.
Colours and energies shimmer and swirl: there is a sense of flow and meditative movement in my paintings that demands contemplation from the viewer, a shifting to another state of being.
Using a multi-layered intuitive painting technique, I build up layer upon layer of rainbow colour: my paintings evolve from abstraction to dreamlike imagery.
My more recent work incorporates my new found love of zentangles.
Some of my artwork is available as greetings cards from the Womancraft Publishing webshop.

My art has appeared in the Earth Pathways Diary and calendar, La Leche League UK magazine and calendar, Rhythm of the Home, Holistic Parenting, The Mother and JUNO magazines. You will see it on the covers of both editions of Reaching for the Moon and the first edition of Moods of Motherhood, as well as internal illustrations in a couple of forthcoming books. I have also created logos for WomanCraft Publishing, Dreaming Aloud and Mindful Doulas.
I also have a passion for creating ephemeral art: labyrinths of sand, pebble spirals, mandalas of flowers… I refer to them as random acts of beauty in the blog.
