I paint with a wide variety of mediums on canvas, board and found objects and exhibited in the North East, London and Leeds during and after my degree course. After graduation I moved to Leeds to take a riverside studio with Leeds Art Space Society, where I was given the opportunity to hold a solo show at St Paul’s Art Gallery. Whilst in Leeds I was also an active member at The Pavilion Photography Centre an organisation that provided exhibition space, open access workshops and conference facilities specifically for women. Involved with all aspects of running the gallery and associated activities I was responsible for hanging shows by Rosy Martin and Sirkka Liisa Konttinen respectively and jointly organised a number of national events such as the 'Women in Art for Change' Conference that hosted debates and invited eminent speakers including Griselda Pollock.
I moved to Otley in 1992 and continued to paint with mixed media and watercolour selling work through several galleries in Yorkshire and from 2007 to 2010 joined an artist led group that run a program of quarterly shows at `The Gallery Upstairs` based in Grassington North Yorkshire. After attending a number of workshops at the Handprint Studio and attending an etching course at No6 Studio Pateley Bridge I bought a small press and now etch aluminum and make collagraphs, I recycle printing plates and also etch metal fragments to make 3D wall hung pieces.
In November 2009 I moved to Middleton, in the Coastal District of Suffolk, an area where I once lived as a small child, since the move I have participated in the Suffolk Open Studios and have been invited to show my current etchings at the Snape Maltings Gallery.
