My introduction to Printmaking happened while on a foundation at Cambridge School of Art. I followed my passion and graduated from Farnham in 1987 having studied Fine Art and an MA in Museum and Gallery Studies. I later completed an MA in Fine Art at Nottingham Trent University.
In 1993 I moved to Leicester where I now live and work as an artist and printmaker; I have a beautiful plant filled back yard, an allotment and two ginger cats.
Significant places, gardens, plants and buildings form the inspiration for my work. I have been part of Leicester Print Workshop since moving to Leicester, teaching occasional courses in Printmaking and Bookbinding.
In recent years I have completed both private and commissioned work, held artist residency at Rugby Museum and illustrated a poetry collection entitled ’40 Lies’ by poet John Gallas which was first published by Carcanet.
