He brought stacks of originals and prints for us to look at! Or drool over, as the case may be.... But best of all, we got to watch him paint! He does things with watercolor that nobody else does. So fun to watch! And then we were sent off to fend for ourselves. Well, maybe not for ourselves.

Story
Tagline
Illustrator and garden addict
Introduction
From my earliest memories I've been captivated by the illustrations in fairy tales and childrens books and couldn't think of anything else I'd rather do when I was grown up than create my own. When I'm not painting in the studio, I can probably be found working in my gardens to make sure that there are plenty of havens for visiting fairies.
