About me

I was born in 1966 in East London to  Greek and Irish parents. I didn’t get on well with school  but was delighted and relieved to find a world of misfit creatives at  East Ham Tech.  I did a degree  at Norwich School of Art where I spent most of my time in the life room drawing and then being inspired by Ana Maria Pacheco. I stopped making art for quite a while after college because I did not know why I was doing it or what I wanted to say  and worked on a variety of youth and community projects, ( became a Hospital Play Specialist, and later became involved in community literacy work, and working in communities is still a big part of my life. 

After work in a Romanian orphanage in the 1990’s, I had something to say and began printmaking and haven’t really stopped since I discovered etching which has taken me on many adventures  and has evolved through installation , projections and smoke drawings .   

I finished my MA in printmaking at Camberwell College of Art September 2012  and have been involved in printmaking and collaborative work in Norfolk since then, curating two print shows in Norwich and   being involved with other printmakers and artists via Print to The People and The Green Fuse as well as showing and selling my work . 

As well as making art, I am a Mum, Community Librarian part time, wild swimmer and sometimes singer in a band called Moths
