I have always loved the natural world and for as long as I can remember I have been drawing the creatures around me. I studied Graphic Design at Medway College of Design but realising I really wanted to paint wildlife and plants I enrolled on the final year of a Wildlife Illustration Course at the Dyfed College of Art in Carmarthen. I graduated from there with a distinction in 1979 and immediately joined Artist Partners, one of the top London Artist’s Agents.

 

For the next few years I illustrated all sorts of wildlife and plants for publishers, packaging and the advertising industry working for numerous clients including The Oxford University Press, Which Magazine, Usbourne Books and I.C.I. and while there I met and married fellow  artist

Stephen Adams.

 

During this period I had also been painting images for greeting cards and calendars and went on to specialize in these, along with collectors plates, giftware and more recently, jigsaws, allowing me more scope in design and subject matter. My work has appeared in the R.S.P.B. Christmas catalogue every year since 1982 and my paintings have been used on greetings cards for most of the major high street stores. I have paintings in many private collections in the U.K. and abroad with work also sold through Christies and Sothebys Auction houses. I have Botanical illustrations in the Kew Gardens archive and in January 2004 I was awarded a Gold Medal from the Royal Horticultural Society for a series of 8 botanical paintings of Rhododendrons.

 

We live in a wooded valley in West Wales with our cat and  two horses, we are both keen gardeners and try to manage our land to attract as much wildlife as possible.
