A little bit about me…
Currently based in Edinburgh, I was born in Glasgow and have also lived in London, Moscow and Barcelona.
I studied paper conservation and book binding at the London College of Printing and then worked in the conservation studios of the British Library for nearly a decade.
I have always made art alongside my conservation and book binding work, and developed a love of printmaking in my years at the LCP.
Having taken time out from my art practice whilst raising my family, I have been gradually finding my way back into it over the past few years.
Occasionally I work from home, but I make most of my artwork at Edinburgh Printmakers and have been a member since 2013.
I have had my work selected for exhibitions run by the Society of Scottish Artists, Visual Arts Scotland and Edinburgh Printmakers amongst others, and have work held in the collections of the British Library and Edinburgh Printmakers. Since 2020 I have been a professional member of the Society of Scottish Artists.
