Originally from Matlock in Derbyshire, I studied Three Dimensional Design at Manchester Metropolitan University. After three years working as a puppet maker and performer, I moved to Edinburgh in 1994 and spent the next fifteen years developing a practice combining art with a community development approach, working with marginalised communities throughout Central Scotland.
Since 2009 I have exhibited in group and solo exhibitions in Scotland and beyond. I am currently working on ‘Tree Stories’, an Arts Council England funded project in Sheffield and Derbyshire examining tree carving and graffiti.
I am a member of the Society of Scottish Artists.
