A local girl, I attended Wellingborough High School for Girls, and then on to college to study Art and Sculpture. I worked as a screen print designer, then went on to study Textile Design and Embroidery. I now concentrate on printmaking and mixed media on board in my own Blue Frog Studio.

I am fascinated by shapes in ancient cultures, and in the marks left behind over the centuries. I also feel a great affinity with birds and their flight. In my latest mixed media works, I depict a bird’s-eye view of the landscapes/seascapes below; close inspection shows hidden images beneath the silhouetted birds. My latest prints are based on the human figure and symbolism of the Pictish ‘painted’ peoples.
