I've been drawing and painting for as long as I can remember. I grew up very close to nature and always had a strong bond to all things natural. My style is colourful and lively, often portraying nature with a hint of fantasy; always trying to keep my inner child alive and well!

When I'm not painting I can generally be found outdoors, usually gardening. These days I'm a full time student, (studying Horticulture) which doesn't leave much time for painting. But I try to do 5 or 6 paintings a year.

Most of my inspiration comes from English gardens and Swedish forests. With roots in Scandinavia and Britain I'm very drawn to the folklore and mythology of both places.

Thanks for visiting my gallery!

Absolutely awesome. I have tears in my eyes and a wide smile on my face when I see something you have painted. The details, the colours... everything. Just thanks to share your artwork with other people :)

Hey, I was wondering if it would be alright if I posted some of your Harry Potter art on my HP tumblr? With credit and links back to you of course! Thank you for reading!
