Screen & Digital Printer
BA (hons) Fine Art
My passion is screen printing: the feel of the paper; the white space and producing limited editions but I also have a love of surface pattern and digital work; all three have been known to show up in one print. The freedom and individuality of screen printing, designing the composition and mixing the colour are all part of the joy. Even the unpredictability of screen print is a plus, as you never quite know how it will turn out which is the joy of the process.
I am delighted that Fi & Stu at Herbert Headley have chosen work from my Kitsugi Screenprints and digital work from my Daisy & Lavender series. This work, together with a selection of greetings cards are now available from their store in Petersfield, Hampshire. Am over the moon!!

I have a love of botanical, architectural, geometric, and linear designs. My influences are walking, nature, and travel; in particular the Far East.
March 2023: Work In Progress: Tulip - inspiration from Rachel Ruysch Golden age female painter. A screen print with a modern palette and composition, acknowledging vanitas and transcience...
Prints can be purchased in my on line shop. I limit my digital prints to a maximum of 10. My screen prints are usually editioned in 2 or 5.
I approach my screen and digital printing as an observation; inspired by my travels and translated through a process where white space becomes increasingly important within the print itself: a reflection of my own detachment when I did travel overseas, as the majority of my images and sketches were made in solitude.The Far East was the main influence for the use of that white space and continues in my practice today. For me, it is a metaphorical pause in printing; meditative and integral to my process and well-being, giving me time to breathe and use the architecture, nature, and elements around me. Within the print the white between two parts has also become a metaphor for me, broken over the past two years, like many people, I now need to mend.Having spent the past years exploring the botanical world, I am looking forward to new explorations. The idea of repair, the joining of two broken parts into something new is where my future work lies. The new work is about mending and repairing.“The world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong at the broken places” Ernest Hemingway.
