I was born in Torquay, a small town on the south west coast of England, so the sea has always been in my life. Seeing an orca for the first time when I was eight years old sparked a lifelong fascination with cetaceans and a particular passion for drawing them. I graduated from the University of Plymouth in 2008 with a Bachelor's degree in Media Arts and, shortly afterwards, had the opportunity to work with a variety of marine animals as an educator at the UK's only coastal zoo. At the end of 2009 I moved to Atlanta, Georgia to be with my husband and currently work as an educator at the world's largest aquarium, where I get to share my passion for the aquatic environment and its incredible animals every day.
My intention as an artist is to inspire and to educate; I'd love for my art to motivate others to take action and help ensure the health of our world ocean. I am a member of the Ocean Artists Society, a group of artists united to raise awareness of the need to protect our natural world.
