Fascinated by & encouraged to read illustrative childrens
books I was influenced particularly by Kate Greenaway, Holly
Hobbie, Cecily Mary Barker, Michael Hague and Janet and Ann
It was the book a 'Day in Fairyland' published in 1948 belonging
to my mother and illustrated by Ann Mari Sogren that I met

Born in 1970, my interests centre around classical music,
conservation of the environment and wildlife.
Nature means everything to me. I live my life for it and
All my creative artwork comes from being a peace loving,
calm and practising yogi person, believing passionately of
total peace and harmony. Each of my pictures is balanced down
to how I feel each day, what food I eat and how much exercise
I have taken.
