    Biography

    I make sculpture and create installations using found objects, images and material which are deconstructed and re-engineered through a variety of processes and methods. These have been exhibited in European galleries and sculpture parks. 

    I have also completed commissions to make site specific pieces for clients using objects which they manufacture and produce or which relate directly to their work and I welcome being asked to work in this way.

    Individually tailored participatory art workshops for events and festivals which relate to my usual practice are within my field of expertise and have provided me with interesting challenges and much enjoyment.

    This year I am launching a solo exhibition, 'Skylines', which is intended to tour UK airports and art venues.  It is inspired by female pilots - of whom there are still so few - with the aim of raising awareness of this minority group. 

    My current areas of investigation cover the changing role of women in society, sustainability and the adverse impact of resources on the marine environment.
