Born in Lytham St.Annes, Lancashire I studied art at Blackpool Foundation College under some inspiring teachers.
 
I then went on to graduate in Fine Art at Canterbury College of Art in the 1980's. Shortly after, I met my lovely partner Tom.
 
Next I worked at the Tate Gallery, Millbank whilst studying for an MA at Leicester. I then went on to work at Warwick University Arts Centre.
 
Once our children had started school I got involved in the Dulwich Festival in which Tom and I regularly exhibit, Tom showing his photography and me showing my felted creatures.
