From a fashion and textiles background, I am a self taught artist who began with a desire to heal personal trauma and expanded to support feminist work and charities (links below). My upbringing in Northern Ireland and reading contemporary and classic feminist authors colour my work. 

I use the female figure to explore the concept femininity, the balance of strength and vulnerability. My textile work revisits what was traditionally 'women's work' in an age of instant and digital. My print works are small devotional pieces which represent different aspects of the feminist spirit.

Please consider donating what you can to the below charities:
