  Back to profiles

I am a Midlands-based artist. I am currently studying for an MA in Painting at Manchester School of Art after completing a year on the Turps Correspondence Course. I graduated with a BA (Hons) Fine Art from Birmingham School of Art in 2013. I work as a freelance Artist Tutor in order to support my practice. I have exhibited my work nationally and internationally.

My work is predominantly figurative and incorporates drawing, painting and printmaking. My work, whilst figurative, is also concerned with facture, colour, space and form. I am currently making work that questions conceived ideas of Motherhood and Feminity.
