Biography

I am a Botanical artist currently living in the foothills of Pelion, (the land of the Centaurs), on mainland Greece.

My love for nature began at childhood, in Africa, where I was surrounded by colourful plants and trees, having a truly inspirational impact on me.

I paint watercolour studies of Mediterranean flora from the various plant communities that flourish here in Pelion as well as other regions of Greece. I particularly enjoy studying the native species of flowering plants with all their characteristics,that can be found in their analogous habitats.

I received a Diploma in Botanical Illustration from the Society of Botanical Artists in 2007.

In 2016 I was awarded RHS silver medal and, a RHS silver-gilt in 2018
