Having spent most of her life in scientific research (virology, cancer, gene therapy), in 2007 she became a professional artist, specialising in botanical art and illustration. She uses mainly the ‘dry brush’ watercolour technique, learned at Kew with Annie Farrer. She has had a lifelong interest in ancient texts, particularly early and medieval Northern European literature. ‘Through these writings I became aware that our links with the plant world range throughout time and human experience, a concept which is reflected in much of my work’.
The RCP will be holding an exhibition of her paintings 2nd March 2015 - 31st July 2015.
