I’m an artist, primarily using printmaking, drawing and collage, sometimes working with animation and artist books.

Presently I’m undertaking a PhD, learning how to be a researcher, and taking a deep dive into ‘trauma-informed’ artist practice. This came about because over the years I’ve run art sessions and projects with lots of different people and communities, becoming gradually aware of the impact of trauma on people and concerned to understand more deeply how artists can work with individuals more safely in a creative way.


Printmaking is a passion because it has huge potential for mark-making, includes a vast range of processes and allows for experimentation and playfulness. Having tasted many of the processes through learning and then teaching at Double Elephant Print Workshop (Exeter, UK), I continued my study at the University of West of England (Bristol, UK) undertaking a part time MA (2015-18 Distinction) in Multidisciplinary Printmaking.

Collage is a recent passion, forming a core strand of my PhD research where I use it to study safe creative practice with service users at Devon Rape Crisis and Sexual Abuse Services. I love it for it’s non-threatening accessibility, it’s enviro-credentials and it’s inherent playfulness.
