Originally trained as a weaver, colour and texture have been my world for a very long time. I came to silkscreen printing quite late on, but I’m so glad I did. I love the chance to get messy mixing the inks myself, and there’s just something magical about lifting the screen to reveal the finished print underneath! I’ve always had a passion for beautiful paper and I’m a bit of a type geek; I can spend many happy hours selecting the perfect combination of typefaces and getting them set just so.
I’m lucky enough to live in the Wiltshire countryside with my husband Craig and our enthusiastically affectionate cat Morgan. I love to travel, though I’m equally happy as the Spring warms to spend a day pottering around my veggie garden.
Forever and always my inspiration comes from nature; seascapes that stretch to infinity right down to the tiniest botanical details. My studio is gradually filling up with little treasures to keep me connected: weathered oyster shells, lichen-covered twigs, a tiny wasp nest perfectly constructed from paper pulp…
I feel greatly privileged to make work that not only draws on my passions, but is inextricably bound up in joy, love and celebration.
