I am a painter-printmaker and songwriter from West Yorkshire (UK). 

I have spent considerable time travelling and making work in various countries around Europe and have completed many residencies abroad, including Greenland, Iceland and Norway. I am especially interested in making art in remote places and how contemporary art can interact and survive in such environments. I have also been involved in music production and live performance, set design and video art.

Since having children four years ago I have been making reduction lino and woodcut prints, utilising the restricted space and time I have outside my role as full-time mother of two preschool kids. I am relatively new to printmaking and approach the process as a different way to explore how I make images; the discoveries of which I intend to eventually apply to future paintings. Consequently I do not usually make two prints the same. I use drawings and photos taken from various moments in my life that compel me to investigate them further. Although the stories contained in these images are often complex and personal, my primary concern is the process of making and what can be uncovered on the physical journey of constructing an image.
