victorian printing press that is the complete opposite to high-tech.
her current theme is a series of everyday objects such as record
players, radios, and televisions from the 1940s inspired by artefacts
she discovered during a 2-year period as artist-in- residence at
craven museum in skipton, north yorkshire.
three of her retro themed lino reduction prints were selected for the
prestigious royal academy summer exhibition 2011 and 2012 in london,
and hung alongside works by tracy emin, paula rego, and jim dine. one
of the images (the record player) was chosen from the work of hundreds
of artists to be an official royal academy greetings card which is on
sale in art outlets throughout the world.

also a member of print link – a collective of yorkshire based artists.
