My current line of enquiry is to investigate how painting and printmaking can inform one another and be combined together in the same body of work. I use a cross over of tools and techniques, creating painterly prints and using printmaking tools to apply paint, as well as collaging handprinted papers directly into the paintings. This increased experimentation has given me an extended vocabulary with which to explore and express my connection to the local landscape.

I left a career in scientific software design to study art as a mature student at Loughborough University I was awarded a BA Fine Arts (2009) and MA Art & Design (with distinction, 2016). I have taught Fine Art at Foundation level and also offer printmaking workshops.
