About Me

I completed my Fine Art degree at Hull University in 2003 which started my passion for all things creative.  From them onwards I have worked as an artist, making mixed media 2D and 3D work.  I have a diverse background in the arts, exhibiting in local and national exhibitions including a solo show at Scarborough Art Gallery; together with group shows at The Saltbox Gallery in Helmsley, The Ropewalk in Barton on Humber and The Oxo Gallery in London.  I have been Artist in Residence for Bridlington Hospital, working in conjunction with Mind and Bridlington Old Parcels Office.  I have also undertaken private commissions, run workshops, given talks and participated in Several Open Studios events.

My work is heavily influenced by found objects, collage, ephemera, the 'throwaway', re-using, vintage and anything remotely curious or unusual.  Whilst I am working, I imagine the past lives that these items have lived; the stories they can tell.  I enjoy the satisfaction of reviving something unloved, to recincarnate and to revive.  These influences flow into other creative avenues and as a result I also make jewellery, textiles and eclectic trinkets.  Alongside my work as an artist, I have a creative business venture called The Curious Caboodle specialising in unique artwork and quirky creations.
