.......inspired by wild and quiet places.

Workshops, Open Studio, Events

My studio hours are variable but I am open to visitors when working there - please check first if you are making a special journey.
Parking outside studio – please park on Main Street. My studio is near the river in Felton, but a little bit further up the hill from The Running Fox and the General Stores/P.O.
Studio 1 is through the archway to the courtyard of Gallery 45.

Alongside developing my Arts practice I have undertaken private garden designs since 1990. Relaxing, meditative, beautiful spaces, my work invites contemplation - places that are ‘good for the soul’.
