Watercolour on paper and vellum.


Using art to raise awareness about conservation is something that I feel passionate about and I recently designed the cover image and logo for The All-Ireland Pollinator Plan.


I live in Dublin but it was whilst living in Egypt that I first began to paint in watercolours. I enrolled in the Society of Botanical Artists Distance Learning Diploma course, graduating in 2012 with distinction, and becoming a full SBA member in 2014. Since then I have exhibited in Dublin, London and Frankfurt. I am now a tutor for the SBA and London Art College.


I received a Highly Commended for my painting of Phoenix dactylifera (Ripening dates) at the SBA exhibition in 2012. I won two golds and a silver medal for my work on vellum at Bloom Botanical Art in Dublin (2014, 2015). In 2014 my painting of Cyperus prolifer Lam (dwarf papyrus on papyrus) was selected for the prestigious ‘Fresh Water’ exhibition at the Gaiás Museum in Spain. I was commissioned to paint the cover for the de Jager bulb catalogue 2016.

My work has been included in the SBA’s Handbook of Plant Forms for Botanical Artists’, and Katherine Tyrrell’s ‘Sketching 365’.
