I grew up on the Wirral Peninsula and initially worked in healthcare and pharmaceutical market research in London and Toronto. However, my free time was spent creating and studying art, and in 2003 I gained a BA(Hons) degree in Art History.
In 2007 I established Explore Designs as the umbrella name for my artworks, mosaics and jewellery. This reflects my exploration of different media, techniques and disciplines. I have taken part in group exhibitions, workshops and also completed a number of individual commissions.
The inspiration for my paintings comes from a desire to capture the beauty of both urban architecture and rural vistas. During the Open Studios weekend I will be completing an acrylic landscape painting and my sketchbooks will be on display to demonstrate my artistic process.
