I began Printmaking in 2000 as an additional creative outlet to support my daytime role as a woven textile designer for the commercial interior market.

My printmaking embraces a variety of techniques from solar plates, collagraphs, lino and wood cuts to monotypes and dry point etchings.

My subject matter is equally varied inspired by nature, travel, music, the built environment as well as random things that simply capture my imagination.

Combining materials and techniques and collaging them together inspires me the most to create truly unique pieces of art.

Born in West Yorkshire in the North of England, I came to Australia in 1994. The Sutherland Shire has been my home since 1996 and continues to be a rich source of inspiration for my work.
