I am a watercolour artist and illustrator based in Dorset.

I have recently graduated from university with a degree in French, Spanish and Italian and now have returned to the Isle of Purbeck where I grew up. Although I have been painting for as long as I can remember, I started building my portfolio of work during my final year of studies and I have been lucky to work with some amazing brands and businesses – both on a local and global scale.

I began swimming in the sea at sunrise every morning during the lockdown period and this has been a huge source of inspiration for my work – the ever-changing colours of the sky and the shapes of the waves. I love to paint vibrant Dorset seascapes from the perspective of the water.
