Drawing my way through nature.

My current art practice is focused on the study and discovery of local wildflowers.

I have also been exploring the seasonal flowers, fruits and vegetables that grow here in Niagara. In addition to botanical illustration, I also work in portraiture.

To follow along with my drawing explorations, drop by my Instagram where I post new drawings regularly.

A collection of high quality art prints and cards are available via my Etsy shop. All items are printed locally here in St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada, and shipped directly from me to you.

I begin with a pen and ink drawing on paper, then add colour digitally. The finished artwork is a high resolution vector suitable for printing at any size.

Would you like a one-of-a-kind drawing of a favourite flower from your grandmother’s garden, or the blooms from your wedding bouquet? I am available for custom botanical illustration requests for tattoos, wedding invitations, product packaging, and other projects. Get in touch!
