Since graduating from the Royal College of Art with a distinction, I have worked as a senior lecturer at Manchester School of Art and Liverpool John Moores University whilst continuing my creative practice as part of my research. I continue to exhibit internationally, winning awards for my work and I am now a full-time working artist.

I have a studio/gallery in Manchester. 

I often paint from memory, influenced by my experiences of landscapes and interactions with people as inspiration for  silkscreen and mono printing.  I use colour as a central element in my work, editing intuitively on the canvas, or manipulating silk screens in layers.

My current collection of prints engage with gestural drawing and earthy colours which have a sense of movement and spontaneity.  My recent paintings, the 'Still Life Series' draws on discarded objects, discovered in junk shops and found on walls during the lockdown. Both prints and paintings use a simplified language and strong colour within a contemporary space, underpinned by a strong sense of design. My visual language is usually underpinned by abstraction.
