I studied fine-art painting at St Albans and Exeter Colleges of Art. After graduating, I worked as an illustrator in London for ten years, working on commissions for books, national magazines, newspapers, and greeting cards. While working as an illustrator, my work developed a highly decorative style which led me into the world of mosaics and I have never looked back. I now create mosaics for private commissions and exhibitions both nationally and Internationally. My early work reflected my former career as an illustrator and featured mainly figurative work but over the last ten years much of my work is abstract which enables me to work more freely with the materials.
I also enjoy collaborating with other mosaic artists and have been part of group exhibitions in York Minster, Wakefield Art Gallery and the 2017 Hull City of Culture project amongst others.
I am a member of the British Association for Modern Mosaic (BAMM) and the northern group of BAMM
