I am a Bath based artist and calligrapher with a passion for capturing the beauty of the world around us. My work is inspired predominately by colour and pattern in the natural world, specifically botanical subjects – flowers, insects and birds. I also take great pleasure in studying the built environment, capturing the unique details and essence of architecture and street scenes. I took up calligraphy in 2019. Whilst calligraphy represents a separate art form, its history is interwoven with the emergence of the depiction of botanical subjects. My work is rooted in an appreciation for traditional approaches to documenting the beauty of the world around us, be it through a paintbrush or nib.
