- About -

My interest and style are both inspired by traditional botanical illustration. This began with herbal medicine books, and as my research has continued on, my influences broadened to that of old Human biological medicine book illustrations. (in particularly old Japanese medical books). The cells, bones and skin give this amazing use of line and when cropped present a patterned aesthetic. I entwined these within my botanical illustrations. The marriage of the two forms has proved incredibly successful in created my most interesting works. I noticed how the detailing within cells and stems communicate a textural look. This has begun an exploration into how textures and patterns can transform my artwork.
