OTHER INTERESTS

I was a member of Gainsborough's House Print Society workshop between 1996 – 1999, and have been a member of the UK Printmakers Council since 1998.

I have a keen interest in travel and graduating from University have had the opportunity to visit, many destinations in the Far East, and also New Zealand. My husband and I also spent from Dec '95 to August '97 living in Cologne, Germany, where I used the time to develop my drawing as well as exploring other mediums.
