I studied painting & drawing at Liverpool College of Art and subsequently qualified as a teacher. I also have a degree in Philosophy and History of Art from the Open University. My grandmothers taught me to knit and make rag rugs, activities which still inform all my work.
I have taken part in Dumfries & Galloway’s Studio Trail ‘Spring Fling’ since its inception. My work has been shown in galleries in England, Ireland and Scotland and is in public and private collections in UK, Europe and USA.
Recent work includes the series:
- ‘catchment’ shown at Gracefield Arts Centre, Dumfries in 2013/14
- ‘habitat’ shown at Perth Museum & Art Gallery 2015
- ‘frost & fire’ shown at Gracefield Arts Centre in 2015/16
- ‘winter’ shown at the Whitehouse Gallery, Kirkcudbright 2016/17
