I am a self taught printmaker, predominantly producing linocut prints. I am a studio member at Northern Print in Newcastle, where I have fallen in love with their antique Albion press.

Originally from Carnoustie in Angus, I have lived in rural Northumberland since 2003. I live in the hamlet of Lanehead in Tarset with my husband Chris, and our dogs, George and Dave. We are fortunate enough to be surrounded by stunning landscapes and abundant wildlife, all underneath the dark skies of Northumberland National Park. This is the inspiration for my work. I am particularly drawn to hares, fascinated by the mystery and folklore that has surrounded them through the ages.

“Lepus” - a printmaker’s celebration of the hare -  I am currently working towards my solo exhibition at Allendale Forge Studios, which will run from 1st October to 31st October. There will be a website print release of new work featuring in this exhibition, in October.

I also produce digital art and illustrations. I collaborated with author Anna Barker to illustrate her book of short stories “Rain Hare”, published in June 2022.

I attend a  handful of fairs each year, as well as selling to trade. I have a small number of stockists in Northumberland.
