I am a very deliberate artist. I enjoy order and clarity. I love scientific approaches and enjoying the obsolete. I'm fascinated with language, history and social science. My work epitomizes all these interests. I work to briefs, commissioned or self-imposed. My work is adaptable provided I am interested in the content. I'm a problem-solver and hope to think my work is distinctive & unique.

Conceptual artist working in themes relating to time and personal experience. Other themes include journeys, health and well-being and perspectives of personal experience. I work on a typewriter, frequently making conceptual artist books. My style is scientific, graphic, neat and research/fact based. Recent inspirations include motherhood, alterations in mental health, ageing, self acceptance and themes relating to celebrating and promoting positive body image.

I am very interested in personal perception, and using optical illusions and language play to form conceptual narratives.
