I am an artist living in rural Cheshire in the Northwest of England, UK.
My work is mixed-media using collage, print, paint, pastel and text. Based on domestic settings both from the present and the past, there are links to childhood, memory and familiarity.
Work is usually made on good quality paper and sometimes canvas. Found papers are sourced from old books, along with envelopes or scraps of sketchbook to be used for the collage element. These are hand-printed with patterns and rich colours.
I gained a Fine Art degree at Bath School of Art in 1996, then travelled widely over time, followed by teaching Art and Design at Blackpool & the Fylde College of Further Education for 8 years, whilst also making my own work.
I have exhibited in galleries and sell my paintings. I have shared a studio with fellow artists and now have a home studio to balance family life.
