"I am an artist printmaker, working from my studio in a converted barn outside Hexham, Northumberland. My work is inspired by wild places and wildlife, castles and the archeological history within the landscape.

I was born in Ireland (into a family of artists) but grew up in Zambia. I returned to Ireland,
aged 16, and graduated from the National College of Art & Design in Dublin. A career in graphic design followed, in Ireland and South Africa before I was appointed design manager at Procter & Gamble in Newcastle. I came late to printmaking, initially as a form of relaxation while my family were quite young. I have now been a professional artist for the last 21 years.

How I work

I work primarily with monotype and collagraph printmaking, sometimes combining both media in one print. Printed by hand, each print is unique. I often uses plants to print with, and I make hand-cut masks/stencils in acetate to create patterns. My use of colour owes much to the diverse cultural influences of my African and Irish upbringing.

What I love about night

We are blessed where I live with the Northumberland National Park Dark Skies status, where I can step out of my front door and see hundreds of stars in the night sky. It reminds me of times I went hiking in South Africa and slept out under the most amazing starscape."
