I was born in Edinburgh and at a young age moved to Yorkshire, where I spent most of my childhood. I attended Leeds College of Art and Design before achieving a first class degree in Fashion Design from the University of East London in 2006. My training in fashion design has influenced the colourful, illustrative nature of my prints and their emphasis on texture.
After graduating I worked in fashion retail buying. I began to feel creatively stifled so decided to do a part-time course in printmaking at the University of Hertfordshire. I became hooked and in 2011 I took the leap to become a full time professional artist/printmaker.
I live in Bedfordshire with my husband and two house rabbits but spend much of my time in South West Scotland at my family’s home in Wigtown – Scotland’s national book town.
Inspired by the stunning natural beauty in Wigtownshire, much of my recent work explores the diverse coastal landscape of the Machars. I'm particularly interested in the rich textures and constantly changing colours that can be seen in the area.
