my Story

Nature is my friend

Raised in a time without screens.
I played outside from dusk till dawn.

In summer, we’d go camping, make long hikes,
spot wildlife and eat wild berries from shrubs.

Growing up I was surrounded by ‘Foxes’, my family,
and I was lucky to spot some real foxes in the wild.


inspiration from nature

I draw and paint mostly natural subjects,
in black and white, and in color,
with ink, watercolor, pencils, and acrylics

I’m a self-taught artist,
fascinated by the creative process, 
which is ever-evolving.


i focus on the bright spots

While healing from CPTSD and CFS, I learned that 
focusing on what isn’t working simply doesn’t work.

And so in my work, I choose to celebrate nature,
intending to inspire appreciation, beauty and joy,

raising awareness of its and our resilience and sharing a new way of looking at our precious lives.

when I’m not creating

You can find me walking the dog,
executing overly ambitious garden ideas,

in my PJ’s curled up in a chair reading, 
in a hot bath binge-watching tiny house videos,

exploring modern mysticism,
or trying very hard to grow a green thumb.
