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.

I have produced a range of collagraph prints for exhibition this year, creating imagery evocative of childhood holidays exploring the Cornish coastline.

I am delighted to be exhibiting at the OPC Summer Show in Oxford this Summer.

I studied Fine Art as a mature student and was awarded a First Class BA (Hons) in Fine Art by the University of Hertfordshire in 2018

I am a member of the Oxford Printmakers Co-operative and have exhibited both online and locally in Oxfordshire, specifically at the West Ox Arts gallery in Bampton and the Oxford Printmakers, where a selection of my prints and card designs are available. Prints and cards are also available via my Etsy shop.
