I love colour, pattern and texture, whether is is on paper, made from glass, created from clay, or even a new fabric for my home. Born in Belfast, I moved across to the mainland in the 1980's to study at Manchester University (Man Met), I really hadn't meant to leave Belfast but I fell in love with the foundation course there on a visit. A sliding doors moment. The next year I moved south to study at at Kingston, completing a degree in Design and Illustration in 1986. Working first as a graphic designer, but later, after a decade at various central London design consultancies, I returned to illustration, principally with mosaic. I now run weekly courses, accept commissions and facilitate bespoke workshops. 

I currently live in Saffron Walden in Essex, with my husband, two sons and two dogs. I work from a shed in the garden and borrow studio space for my courses nearby in Wimbish.

A few years ago I was really excited to complete a certificate in printmaking at the Curwen Print Study Centre in Linton and I continue to explore the many possibilities of screen printing, lino and collage.


My printmaking group, INKPOTS - have  our next exhibition in July 2018, at The Aldeburgh Gallery (in Aldeburgh, Suffolk) from 5-12 July. More details will be posted nearer the time - if you would like to be kept informed about this and other sales, please sign up to the newsletter...  


Any of the collages below may be bought as a Giclee print (a very high quality printed copy where the ink is sprayed onto the paper). These are mounted and backed with conservation quality board and come in A4 (£22) and A3 (£30). Other sizes available, post and packing additional £5 - please contact me  - a paypal invoice can be sent or bank details to pay by BACS. In due course these will be available from my online shop. Please make a note of the name of design by hovering over the picture.


Prints can be framed (oak or black wood) and sent with perspex. Approx £25 plus P&P (£10). Takes approx 3-5 days.
