I was born in Tunbridge Wells, Kent, and studied in Yorkshire, first at Bretton Hall College and later, after raising three children and teaching for some years, at Sheffield Hallam University. I gained BA (Hons) in Fine Art in 1995.

In the same year I was selected to be an artist in residence at Dean Clough, Halifax, where I am still based, exhibiting widely in municipal and private galleries.
