I was born in Buckinghamshire and brought up in the grounds of Stowe School, a beautiful setting of lakes and temples.
After completing an Art Foundation Course at Farnham, West Surrey
I attained a degree in Fashion and Textiles at St Martins School of Art.
Working as a textile designer in London, New York, Hong Kong and India I finally set up a design studio in Melbourne, Australia where I lived and worked for six years.
Returning to England in 2000 I decided to work as a fine artist alongside my commercial work.
