Statement

Born in England. BA (Hons) Degree in Fashion Design from Ravensbourne College of Art and Design in London. Masters Degree in Textile Design and Fiber Arts fromĀ  Royal College of Art in London. Worked as Knitwear designer for Jaeger.

Emigrated to the United States in 2002 to live in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Now working and exhibiting as an encaustic and mixed media artist.

Juried into the New Hampshire Art Association in September 2008 and currently represented by Nahcotta Gallery, Portsmouth, NH.

My art is inspired by the breathtaking beauty around my Seacoast home where I continue to be amazed by the discovery of often hidden colors, patterns and textures in nature, that seem to change with the shifting light and seasons of New England.
