After completing a BA in Fine Art I was offered a place at the Slade School of Art in London to do a Masters in Printmaking. These experiences established my love for how process and technique can enhance and develop artistic language. Upon graduating, I was awarded the Printmaking Fellowship at Cheltenham (now University of Gloucestershire). This opportunity allowed me to develop my practice as well as teaching on the degree course. From that early experience of teaching, I went on to do a PGCE art course at Goldsmiths, London and had a teaching career working in London and Dorset. Over the years I have exhibited widely including the RE Open Print Exhibition at the Bankside Gallery in London, Bradford Open Print Exhibition, the Malthouse Gallery in Lyme Regis and the Royal West of England Academy in Bristol. These days, I divide my time between developing my own practice and running workshops in my new studio.
My work is an emotive response to the environment, wherever I happen to be at the time. I aim to capture the drama, life and mood of these places in sketches which are then developed into prints.
I love printmaking because it allows me to be creative and experiment with techniques. I never tire of the magic of revealing a print; not knowing exactly how it might turn out!
