About the Artist

Completed a B.A. Hons and a M.A. in Fine Art at Newcastle University, currently lives and works in North Yorkshire

In her paintings she aims to create a specific atmosphere, predominantly through tactile paint application, balancing of composition, and the delicate juxtaposition of colours, shapes, and collage. She juggles with these elements, scraping and rubbing layers away to reveal a positive. They are concerned with, looking through: windows, fences, landscapes peppered with objects, and interiors.
She is happy with her paintings when, as Howard Hodgkin so succinctly puts it:
“You keep on balancing and balancing and balancing until the picture wins”
