I’m an artist and freelance writer based in Worcestershire, U.K., creating organic, free-form and geometric living sculptures from plants.

Professionally I clip and maintain topiary at beautiful gardens including Morton Hall, Donnington Hall and Dixton Manor, as well as restoring William Morris’s Fafnir Dragon topiary hedge at Kelmscott Manor.

As a freelance writer, I contribute articles about topiary and the visual arts for trade publications and specialist magazines, including Topiarius and Prolandscaper.

My work as a topiarist has been featured in magazines such as House and Gardens (July/ August 2020) and Gardens Illustrated (July/August 2022).
