I am a creative artist, designer, painter and tutor, focusing on drawing, fine art, abstract painting, hand-painted textiles, eco-printing and digital surface pattern.

I like to take inspiration from the natural world - texture and movement found in landscape in both my artwork and textiles with mark making, layering texture and using mixed media including acrylics, pastels, chalk and ink wash. I love to work with colour given from nature in my textiles using eco (contact) printing directly from plants, Wax Batik, Shibori (using an indigo dye vat) and hand painting.

I live in Birmingham, West Midlands, with my husband and daughter and I divide my artistic time between my purpose-built home studio and my studio space in Digbeth. I love the physicality of painting and drawing, becoming lost in the flow and movement of creating a new piece of work and seeing their personal journeys develop.


Please do not hesitate to contact me about the my Paintings, Fabric Designs, and my Workshops. If you have a particular colour palette in mind then I will be happy to discuss your requirements, working towards producing a personalised portfolio for you.
