She describes her works in oil on linen or acrylic on paper as “portraits” of trees. Inspired by Japanese prints and 20th century abstracts, the painting forms a trellis of trunks and branches speckled with light or silhouetted against the sky – evoking the strange rather than the picturesque.

A resident of North London, when she first visited the Heath, she lost her bearings and was amazed at its size – loving the feeling of being lost in a desert.
