About

Current work combines a passion for the natural environment with artistic concerns, exploring the boundaries between the two.

Recent work, in the form of paintings and prints, has resulted from research at Kew Herbarium, into the world wide , ubiquitous herbal plant, centella asiatica, used in traditional medicine and ayurvedic medicine and also of the sea lily (crinoid) collection at the Natural History Museum. A group of marine organisms, with a plant like structure, sea lilies have inhabited oceans, worldwide, for over 500 million years. They are pertinent to concerns regarding pollution, fossil fuels and climate change: their fossilised remains are used as oil indicators.
