Artist, feminist, humanist, socialist. Born in Liverpool. Studied Fine Art at Liverpool Art College. Gained MFA with distinction from Liverpool Academy of Art and Design in 2010. Set up charitable studio group Cross Street Arts from 1999 and currently a studio member and trustee. Regular exhibitor regionally, nationally and internationally.
My practice encompasses a wide range of media including drawing, painting,mixed media, sculpture and traditional craft skills. Often using ethnographic artifacts as my starting point I make work that explores the transformative power of art to question political and social issues in contemporary society. Combining my craft skills and a dark sense of humour I focus upon the female, making my own interpretations of femininity that connect contemporary women to those of the ancient world.
