I studied Fine Art at the Kent Institute of Art and Design in Maidstone graduating with 1st class honours. I specialised in Printmaking immediately, having been intrigued by the possibilities of process and exploring innovative ways of making marks. I continued Post Graduate education at the Slade School of Fine Art.

I have made prints and exhibited widely in the UK and Internationally for the past 25 years.

I am currently the Senior Lecturer in Printmaking at The University of Northampton. Alongside this I have taught workshops at West Yorkshire Print workshop, Leicester Print workshop and have been involved in numerous community arts projects. I teach etching, drypoint, collagraph, silkscreen and lino.

My work explores boundaries between people and places, liminality. It explores the dynamics and ambiguities of relationships, therefore exposing private ways of seeing and that of wider public discourses.

I feel very privileged and honoured to have won the Flourish Award for Excellence in Printmaking in 2014 and have had solo exhibitions at West Yorkshire Printmakers Gallery, Harrington Mill Studios Gallery and Huddersfield Museum alongside numerous group exhibitions in commercial galleries.


I am fascinated by Printmaking, I live for it and never ceased to be excited by its magic.
