I studied at Oregon State University for the 3rd year of my Hons Degree from Grays School of art. It was at O.S.U. I first experienced fibre art and textiles as a fine art discipline rather than design.
I have continued to experiment with fibre arts, particularly papermaking, and have been self-employed since graduating with an MA from Manchester Metropolitan University in 1992. I have completed many residencies including 5 months in Taiwan at the Chayoyang University and the Su-Ho Paper Museum.
