ARTIST | EDUCATOR
- Ba (Hons) - PGCE - MA (PGCert) -
My work is often described as bold, joyful and 'makes people smile'. My artwork is produced using a variety of methods and materials, and strongly features graphic shapes and whimsical characters. I love being outdoors and being surrounded by nature so my work often includes elements from the environment that surrounds me and I always find a way of incorporating pattern into my work. My favourite type of canvas in an unexpected one; I especially enjoy customising street furniture and installing public works of art. When I am not in my studio or installing art outdoors you will find me teaching a design class or running a creative workshop for students and enthusiasts across the North of England and Yorkshire.

In 2015 as a way of further exploring my passion for education and the community my sister and I co-founded SevenThreeOne Ltd. SevenThreeOne is a non-profit organisation that uses the Creative Industries to further the education and skills of serving prisoners, ex-offenders and disengaged young people. One of the ways we do this is through the provision of training centres and creative events in prisons and the community.
