My Background

I was raised on a farm and spent much of my childhood in Ireland, my mother’s homeland. These early years in the Emerald Isle nurtured a passion for wildness, innocence and the transformative power of love.

Inspired by the world and all it contained, I travelled widely in my twenties with a thirst for exploration. One of my most formative journeys was spent with a horse-drawn community in England, discovering ancient, sacred and forgotten parts of our land.

I also spent time living and working in Australia, Africa and Europe. These adventures fed my soul with kaleidoscopes of rainbow drenched landscapes that I still pour onto my canvas today.

My relentless spirit of curiosity and deep enquiry led me to pursue a degree in Philosophy and Literature at Brighton University.

After the birth of my daughter Poppy I pursued a formal five year fine art training in Sussex which provided me with an opportunity to deepen my passion.

I have been working as a full-time professional artist since 2000. My contemporary paintings are held in private and public collections worldwide. My canvases are created using a multitude of layers and are always deeply connected to nature. My practice is ultimately a celebration of all that is good in the world.

I currently live in Devon with my husband and fellow artist Mike Boyer and have four children.
