I live in Oundle in Northamptonshire and work from my studio at home. As an Undergraduate I studied Fashion and Textile design at Birmingham Institute of Art and Design. I then completed a postgraduate at Cambridge University before becoming a Secondary Art, Design and Photography teacher. Over a number of years I have developed a wide variety of skills and I enjoy working in mixed media and across disciplines. I am drawn to colour, pattern and texture and I love to experiment with construction and collage. The MA has enabled me to refine my approach as a Fine Artist and develop my understanding of design elements. My portfolio includes paint and print, photography and digital media. My work centres around my own experiences and passions such as food, travel and the great outdoors.
