After studying for a BA in textiles at Trent Nottingham University I worked in design and illustration for clients as varied as Australian Vogue, Marks and Spencer and Selfridges amongst others.
I spent some time travelling and very much enjoyed keeping sketchbooks of my travels through Asia. I also took the opportunity to learn batik from the masters in Yogyakarta, Java. I then transferred these techniques into my work.
I have worked both on fabric and paper and have had exhibitions of my work both in illustration and textiles.
After studying a PGCE in Art, I taught art in London schools for several years.
Since having my children I have rediscovered my love of painting and printmaking and I am excited to be exhibiting with Artists At Home again this year.
In my current work, I am using a combination of printmaking and painting to achieve the colour, movement and texture of natural forms. I have also been working with Silk screen printing and continue to study to keep my work fresh and energetic.
