Paintings and etchings, inspired by buried relics from archaeological finds with a contemporary twist.

It is the idea of discovery of surviving traces and remains of lost, decayed, buried artefacts from archaeological explorations that continually inspires her. Her inspiration is also drawn from a love of timeless shapes and forms and the decorative qualities of their pattern and ornament.
She studied at St. Martin’s School of Art (BA) and the Central School of Art (MA), London. Her work is regularly selected for Open Competitions, including the RA Summer Exhibition and the RWA, Bristol and is also in many private collections.

She is also a member of the Somerset Printmakers and Spike Print Studio. Printmakers.
