Originally from North Wales, I have lived in York for two decades as a partner, mother, teacher and artist. Having taught for over 20 years I have just graduated with a BA (Hons) in Contemporary Craft from York College and will take up the role of Artist in Residence at York College in September.
In the last two years my work has been shown in exhibitions in York, Scunthorpe, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, London and Urbino, Italy. My dementia work was shown at Alzheimer's Research UK's National Research Conference in Harrogate. I am a member of the British Origami Society and a UK Prize Winner in the Eleanor Worthington International Art Prize in Tertiary Education, Italy and the UK.
I am fascinated with materials; their properties, structural possibilities and uses, and am interested in seeing how far they can be pushed in new directions. Working in 3D mixed-media, I choose the material that best conveys my intention and theme. My work encompasses sculpture, installation, lighting, interior design and jewellery. Translucency, the play of light and shadow, repetition, and pattern often feature in my pieces.
Thought-provoking works and sculptural pieces that capture the play of light and shadow.
