BA (hons) printmaking, UWIC, 2000
MA Ceramics, UWIC, 2004
My inspiration comes from the world around me – I love absorbing my surroundings, paying particular attention to colour and shape. I’m inspired by beautiful (Usually rainy) skies, trees, sheep, fields and (Often slightly humourous) scenes I come across in day to day life.
Born and bred in Skipton, the Yorkshire Dales has always been very influential. I love to watch the sheep, cows and birds in the fields, the changing weather and seasons and the farmers and dry-stone-wallers at work.
As a printmaker, I work with a variety of different techniques, some of which I like to combine. The majority of my work is done using drypoint, monotype and collagraph printing.
