I found an interest in drawing at a young age after being inspired by the illustrations of Quentin Blake and Tove Jansson and after seeing Picasso's "The Three Dancers", began painting.

In 2008 I began working with potter Richard Godfrey at his workshop in Devon.

I graduated from the University of Plymouth in 2010 and was awarded the Ben Hartley Prize for my final degree show work (Through trees). My work currently resides in personal and corporate collections internationally.

I started my own pottery studio in 2016.

I am inspired by the irrepressibility of nature, of the personal horror it can inspire and beautiful magnitude and incomprehensibility of it all. I also like music and cake so I am not a total downer.
