My current work is influenced by the many artists that have acted as a "Graphic Witness" in their time – Hogarth and Goya, Magritte and A. Paul Weber, with perhaps a bit of whimsy thrown in. Also, having grown up in London, travelling on the tube to school, I take inspiration from the printed material we see all around us. Working with a mixture of mediums, painting, printmaking and collage, I try to create thought-provoking images but with a witty, tongue-in-cheek element.

Trained as a Theatre Designer at the Wimbledon School of Art, I worked for the London Fringe and touring companies for 7 years. With creative parents, making things has always been a part of life. Moving on in a different direction I now also deal with another kind of paint!

Over the last few years I have become an active member of the Reading Guild of Artists, where I have been able to use and develop various skills. I am currently on the RGA council and volunteer as the Webmaster and Archivist.

Here's a look at the first in a new set of works inspired by noteworthy women associated with Reading.
