About

I am a printmaker trained at Gray's School of Art in Scotland. I have lived in Australia and Indonesia since graduating in 2004 and I am currently living in the beautiful Perth Hills in Western Australia with my husband and children.

I am influenced by the native plants and landscapes of the places I live and Western Australia has such unique and diverse flora and vistas I consider myself very lucky to live here. My prevailing medium is relief printing, usually with linoleum, occassionally wood. I am in love with the process of linocut and the tactility of the materials.

Art Deco and Art Noveau has always been hugely influential in my work as I am attracted to graphic palettes, lines and patterns. Fish are a recurring theme in my work and I love to represent them with exaggerated and stylized patterns. echoing those earlier styles.
