Art inspired by being outside and enjoying the natural world!


I'm currently enjoying illustrating Swimming, Cycling and Running, having done various ultras and triathlons such as the Coastal Trail series and Owler Half Ironman distance race.

You can see influences of sport, travel and biodiversity in my artwork and I hope you enjoy looking at the galleries.....


I studied Zoology at Cambridge, before doing a PGCE specialising in Arts at the Institute of Education in London. This was followed by part time Masters in Museums and Galleries, and a PhD in Biodiversity, whilst working at the Natural History Museum. I have studied Illustration and Graphic Design at Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London. These have all influenced my work- for example the Biodiversity maps you can see in the Nature Gallery.

Having worked as a teacher, a boat Education Manager, in NHM and the Science Museum, I'm now Outreach Manager at the Royal Veterinary College in King's Cross (since 2013).  I teach Art Anatomy classes at the Camden campus on Monday evenings and jointly run the Nancy Rothwell Art Prize for young people, with the Royal Society of Biology. Maybe see you at an event soon....
