My work is inspired by the landscapes of our cultures. I grew up in Forest Row on the edge of Ashdown Forest and have lived in London, Vietnam, Bali, Uganda and now live in Fairwarp on the edge of Ashdown Forest again. I believe that we use pattern as a language, passing stories and knowledge to each other and to our children. I try to represent this idea in my work.

I use resist to incise patterns, which can be draped or inserted across landscapes. These two  elements, pattern and landscape, inform each other and can be interpreted with a narrative or understood as a comment on the world we live in.

After moving to Fairwarp 2019 I opened Black Shed Studios. From this base I have participated in the Brighton Open Studios and Crowborough Arts Open Studies most years.

I began my formal education as an artist at the Eastbourne School of Art before moving to London to attend the Slade School of Fine Art, University College London. I won the Boise Travel Scholarship to Italy before graduating. Since then I have been fortunate to have exhibited in several countries. I had major exhibitions in Jogjakarta, Indonesia and Hanoi, Vietnam, and was part of a British Council travelling exhibition in Vietnam.
