I have always been fascinated by art. Stories of my childhood from family members often include days when I would sit in the garden mesmorised by paint on paper, or when I covered the house in glitter. I have always been very independent and have been very inquisitive. I have always wanted to try things with my own hands and I think this is what made art so captivating for me. There is always something to learn!
I studied art at collage with a passion that saw me working late into the night and early hours of the morning almost every day for several years. I knew I needed to push on further with my interest and this lead me to study Art History at B.A level and then go on to M.A conducting extensive research into the psychological relationship we all share with art.
I never stopped making art however which only helped to enrich my research further. Today I am a Curator, Practising Artist, Writer and Art Historian and I love it all.
Thank you for visiting my site, please enjoy your stay and get in contact if you have any questions. My mailing list will also be up and running soon as well as my online store. I am currently moving headquarters and once my new studio is up and running this site will be fully operational.
I love making, Lino Cut Prints, Cyanotypes, Painting and Drawing. However more than anything I like experimenting, learning and exploring new things!
My Love or nature and the outdoors fuels this, with instant access to the beautiful North York Moors and a passion for hill-walking and mountaineering with my wonderful friends I have the best sources for inspiration.
Art Historian and Curator
I am fascinated by the relationship we have with artwork and what this tells us about ourselves. I also love using this insight to create exciting and dynamic experiences of artwork for all.
I currently work for Athena as their full time Curator but I am also excited to be a part of the Art Rooms London 2018 curation team, exhibiting in January 2018.
I am delighted that my research has been of interest to others and that they have asked me to attend talks and even publish my writing too.
I love to express and document my own learning through blogs too and I am always working on a piece. I am to make the blog linked to this site into a exciting and informative place to visit as I catalogue my own work but also anything I have learnt along my career as it develops.
