About

I love it when a person gets lost in a picture, carried back to their childhood or inspired.

Starting with very rough sketches, I translate some of them into paintings or handmade prints. My handbag is full of scribbles on the backs of receipts or napkins because you never know when an idea may arrive.

My love of storytelling and comedy started with a Performing Arts background and the dreamy, whimsical themes from a tendency to 'switch off' from the world around me. A beautiful image is pleasing, but something has got to be happening. 

I like to combine my ideas with ancient printmaking techniques, particularly etching, as I can achieve multiple prints with a beautiful, crafted vintage feel where each one is handmade and therefore unique.

My tidy studio (nothing like my handbag) in North London is where the chaos of my ideas find order and come to life. 

My handmade prints are permanently on show at the Southbank Printmakers Gallery in South East London.
