Trained at Camberwell School of Art, London - National Diploma in Design (Painting) and University of London - Art Teachers' Diploma.

Studied printmaking at Harrogate College of Art with Oliver Pemsel.

Studied safe etching with Keith Howard & Friedhard Keikeben - 2000/01 at Dumfries Arts Centre.

Has taught in a variety of Educational settings - Further Education, Adult and Higher Education - painting, drawing for ceramics and textiles, printmaking. Co-ordinator for BSc Textiles at Huddersfield University, West Yorkshire.

Taught painting on qualifying and later accompanied her husband to Lagos, Nigeria where she also taught and took on commissions. This was an important time in her development and the powerful forces of place, colour, texture and pattern are still evident in her work. On returning to England she moved to Yorkshire where the quality of light inspired her to change direction from painting to printmaking. Printmaking - etching, screenprinting and mixed media have given her freedom to explore these influences and allowed her to develop as an artist.

Until recently, examiner and moderator for the International Baccalaureate. Now continuing with her personal work.

Member of the Printmakers Council and North & South Printmakers.
