Art has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. It has always given me a place to escape to where I can express my feelings with a rainbow of colours. Moving to Cornwall in my twenties I discovered my spiritual home. I found myself surrounded by so much beauty in the coast and countryside the artist in me flourished.

After a period of ill health I decided to leave my job in banking and focus on my art. I studied for a qualification in illustration and graduated with a distinction in 2013. Shortly after this I found out I was pregnant. My daughter was born in 2014 and I love being a full-time mother.

I created Tidal Horizons just over a year ago to share my work as art made its way back into my life once again. I have also completed a commission to illustrate a children's book, as well as gaining attention for my fashion illustrations in the Draw a Dot monthly open calls. I am now working on a new style of work in acrylic on canvas, painting the natural world that surrounds me here in Cornwall.
