I’m a visual artist based in the UK.  I live and work by the sea and the chalk coastline in Margate, Kent. I am a graduate of the Royal College of Art and Ravensbourne College of Art, and a mother of three adult children. In between my first degree and masters I did a PGCE at Goldsmiths and worked as a secondary school and special needs art teacher. I also worked as a commercial artist and designer in graphics and textiles. The two intense years spent studying at the RCA was a pivotal point in my career and provided an opportunity to explore and redefine the textile making, which had been suppressed during earlier art school experiences. In 2008 I was selected for Reflect Forward; a research project at The Geffrye Museum (now Museum of the Home) + a solo show at Craft Central in Clerkenwell. I exhibited at Crafts Council’s Origin: Somerset House in 2006 + 2009 .
Recently I have been developing new work in series’ which explores textile memories, waste, & fragmentation via abstraction. I have presented work publicly for the Margate Festival 2019 & exhibited in open call shows at Hastings Contemporary and Turner Contemporary 2021.
