I am a contemporary artist specialising in bright, bold watercolours based on natural and botanical subjects. In my work I seek to capture the beauty that can be found in Nature, using the highest quality Japanese watercolours and gold leaf.

An artist 'whose work stands out as challenging conventions and breaking new ground'

Gemma Peppe, founder of Art on a Postcard

My studio is based on the Gower Peninsula, Wales and I regularly accept commissions.

I have worked with Fortnum & Mason, London; Le Bon Marche, Paris; The Huntington Art GalleryCalifornia; Cambridge Contemporary Art Gallery, Cambridge; Mission Gallery, Swansea; and I was invited to create paintings for the renowned Art on a Postcard. My work has also been featured in The Times Newspaper. While still studying for my A-levels at school I was a Daily Winner on the tv programme Watercolour Challenge. I was the tutor of Botanical Watercolour at the Henley-on-Thames School of Art up until the pandemic.

My background is in Painting Conservation, and I studied at the prestigious Courtauld Institute of Art which only accepts 5 students every year. Before devoting my full time to painting, my earlier career as a painting conservator lead me to work with institutions such as The National Gallery of Wales, Cardiff; Glynn Vivian Art Gallery, Swansea; The Netherlands Institute for Cultural Heritage, Amsterdam and many more.
