I am a multi-disciplinary artist working from my studio in West Wales. The effects of my surroundings as a child growing up in a creative household is at the heart of my work, enriched by artist parents and their friends, welsh patchwork quilts, samplers, inspiring paintings, antiques and colourfull ceramics created an engaging visual feast for my sences, pieced together to tell a story. Home was an eccentric stimulating mix of colour and texture. My surroundings were part of my make up and my art work is a response to my life. 

I am interested in the history of objects and the familiarity I feel when I look at them, they hold a connection to people, places and a specific time, they all have their individual narrative linking to memory, meaning and emotion. Within the work I am presenting a new version of my past as well as creating a new life for the objects in a different, altered interior. Pattern, colour and shape are a central part of my work and I assemble the images together using still life study's, photographs and found images, piecing them together to create a composition.

I originally studied Screen-printing at the London College of Printing. Then in 2002 I returned to Wales to study at the Swansea College of Art / UWTSD where I received a Degree in Surface Pattern Design.
