Born in Manchester (England) in 1974 my childhood encompassed living in the urban to settling in rural Lancashire where she works from my home studio overlooking the Countryside. I am a recently retired educator.
I have worked on and off in the community for a number of years on various arts based and regeneration projects and well-being programs. I supported the Pendle in Paint arts project and was the director of my own gallery. I will continue to develop these alongside my own arts practice. I am currently being mentored via the Harris Museum through UCLan and the notable CJAM event, perhaps working towards developing a question for a PHD in Women’s Studies, Art and Psychology.
I focus on feminist issues surrounding abuse related to Power and Control. Grappling themes of identity with psychoanalysis I hope to become an arts activist for all Human Rights; I now introduce ‘Little Noises’.
