I’m an artist who paints and draws. My work is inspired by feminism, popular culture,  music and human desires.

My paintings are expressive and vibrant, on paper and canvas. When making art I’m always hoping to express a feeling that can’t easily be put into words. I’m fascinated by society and the rules we make, our aspirations and our relationships. I paint from life, from found photos and from my imagination.

In 2013 I set up Urban Sketching/artist networking group Sketch That which has monthly meet-ups and an annual exhibition.  I have been exhibiting my art work since 2000 when I graduated from Leeds Metropolitan University with a degree in Graphic Arts & Design. I like cats.
