Initial sketches, recording objects and animals that I have abstracted from their natural surroundings. These drawings can be worked further onto larger pieces of paper; thinking about composition, space and the placement and pairings of specific images.

I am also a Textile Artist creating hand stitched images reinterpreted from drawn observations of the nature and environment around me.
