I live and work on the Suffolk coast.  The area’s history, farming, the sea and the effects of tidal currents all feed into aspects of my work.

Mostly I return time and again to the stretch of coast near my home, but working with the other artists in the group has taken my out of my comfort zone and made me experience new areas of our coast, which all experience the same East Anglian weather conditions.

I have a BA in art and design and have exhibited mainly in East Anglia.

I have run workshops for children and the elderly and have illustrated five children’s books.
