The motif of the transformative quest in medieval romance informs her work with a sense of travelling outwards into the wild forest, and inwards into the mysteries of the self. Her work is steered by the nature of her materials, whether local charcoal, metal plate, wood, or lithographic stone.

a Fellow of the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers and has a Fine Art
MA from Aberystwyth University.
