I am currently studying B.A Hons Fine Art at the University of Sunderland in the North-East of England. I have a passion for printmaking, though I have also produced large-scale paintings, watercolours and pencil drawings, as well as jewellery!
I enjoy poetry and have been writing my own stuff since my early teens, alongside my artwork. I find my artwork can at times feed off the creative writing and vice versa. Some of my prints on display here compliment certain individual poems I have wrote. Feel free to look, leave comments and hopefully enjoy!

I leave the house at 10:30am / Beginning a journey right up to the / Stormy border of townscape wilderness, / Where the rain taps tunes on …
