Living and working in Oxfordshire I am fascinated by the natural world and find it never ceases to provide inspiration.

I generally use a combination of traditional fine art media and new media in my studio practice, but recently discovered that I really enjoy exploring the experimental nature of collagraph plate making and the unpredictable nature of this form of printing. I like its abstract quality with emphasis on texture, colour and shape.

Currently, I am working towards producing a range of collagraph prints for exhibition later this year, aiming to create imagery evocative of childhood holiday memories exploring the Cornish coastline.

I completed my studies with the Interactive Design Institute and was awarded a First Class BA (Hons) in Fine Art by the University of Hertfordshire in 2018

I recently became a member of Oxford Printmakers Co-operative and I am delighted to be exhibiting at ‘Printmaking Magic’ at the Oxfordshire Museum, Woodstock in March.

I have previously exhibited both online and locally in Oxfordshire, specifically at West Ox Arts gallery in Bampton and the House of Smalls in Chipping Campden, where a selection of my prints and card designs are available. Giclee prints and cards are also available via my Etsy shop.
