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 Suffolk in 2009 living in Middleton for ten years, now in Badingham since 2019 where I have a purpose built studio
