The main focus of my work is drawing, painting, printmaking and animation on themes including storytelling and childhood. I worked as an art therapist 1998-2006. I am now self-employed as an artist/mother.

As a child I was unaware of the unseen dangers of playing in the woods, but as a woman entering the woods alone to sketch I feel vulnerable to the unseen and uncanny nature of the woods. I have looked at fairytales for inspiration in particular Hansel and Gretel, Little Red Cap and Babes in the Wood to help me convey this feeling of uneasiness.
