Biography

I am surrounded by the beautiful coastal landscape of North Cornwall. As I walk on the beach or coastpath, I look, photograph, gather and hold – pebbles, shells, bits of driftwood or seaweed seem to magically find their way back to the studio with me. These ‘tiny treasures’ and the places where sea meets land, are my ongoing inspiration.

As an inter-disciplinary artist, I work with different media and creative practices. Following what interests me, I make images about these things I love. Painting, printmaking and alternative process photography are the focus of my practice. I also actively seek out creative collaboration with other artists as a mechanism for extending my practice.

I studied at Newlyn School of Art over several years, completing two years of intensive professional practice development in June 2023.
