I have spent more than 24 years playing with glue, porridge oats, string and lichen to create my colourful collagraphs, inspired by the British countryside.
Born in London in 1965, I grew up in Norfolk before studying English and Classics in London. On moving to Dorset in the early 1990’s I attended Bournemouth and Poole College of Art and Design. My work was selected for the National Print Exhibition held at the Mall Galleries in 1998 and I was lucky enough to be offered my first solo show in London the following year as part of the City of London Festival of Arts.
As a member of Edinburgh Printmakers since 2012 and a regular house artist across the UK, my work can be found in many galleries both in England and Scotland. I am currently represented by Wills Art Warehouse in London who organise the Affordable Art Fairs. In 2013, my husband and I moved from Dorset where we had spent 20 years to Lochgoilhead on the West Coast of Scotland. Quite a lifestyle change.
Over the years my work has been featured in various publications including the French Magazine, Practiques des Arts as well as Green Art: Trees, leaves and Roots, an art book published in America. I was also recently commissioned to design two book covers for Between Stone and Sky by Whitney Brownstone and Native by Patrick Laurie. In 2015 two of my collagraph prints were selected for the Winter Exhibition at the Royal Scottish Academy.
In recent years my work has allowed me to travel to Mexico and Australia, visiting Facebook Followers, where I ran demonstrations for a number of prestigious print workshops.
From the Post Office continue past the jetty along the unadopted Inverlounin Road for about 1/2 a mile. Look for signs for Ben Bheula on the right (loch side).
