Artists & Makers

I am originally from Belfast, in Northern Ireland. I studied Textiles in Liverpool, England, before moving and settling in London in 1996, where I completed a masters degree in Textiles at Chelsea College of Art.

I have worked with these printing techniques for over 20 years now, and am thoroughly addicted to printing with flowers. I absolutely love trying different colour and textural combinations - basically doing flower arranging!

I enjoy giving the wild-flowers and weeds of London's Urban Meadows a countrified and beautiful context, and by putting them in the limelight, so they can be enjoyed by many.

My work has been described as "science fiction meets art noveaux", "Avatar-esque", ""Forests in moonlight" ... please send me other descriptions if you feel inspired!..
