I graduated at The London College of Fashion and worked as a visual merchandiser for Topshop and then Harrods. My background is working with young people and in the past ten years I found myself going back into this sector as an Art tutor.

- The Compound Calisthenics gymWhat started as a summer hobby in a local park ended up being a much needed provision at a local community centre in Wellingborough. Calisthenics is an affordable way to train and has proven popular with young men in the area. I was invited to paint a mural to reflect the work done in the community centre and reflect the spirit of the Compound community.
- Celebrating 100 years of SuffragettesI was invited to be one of 3 female artists to facilitate a community mural project in the industrial area of Reading. We were asked to engage young people from the local area to celebrate the industries women would have taken over from during and after the War.

They have been creating costumes and floats for Notting Hill Carnival since 1995 and now retired.
