I am an artist, printmaker and designer working in Leeds, UK. My background is in design and I have a BA (Hons) in Textiles and Fashion. I spent many years working in education and have taught art and design to children and young people from Reception Class, through Primary and Secondary school level to Foundation Art students at Further Education level.
My inspiration comes from many sources: from the Vienna Secession to 1950's graphic design to modern printmaking. I also have a love of pattern, texture and colour in nature, using organic qualities of leaves and plants to develop ideas.
My mixed-media pieces are often embellished with the addition of collage, textiles, typography (another passion) and calligraphy, making much of my work tactile in nature.
