I am a local artist living in Leeds. I use my art practice to relax and re-charge and enjoy the meditative element that art making can bring. I studied Fine Art in Canterbury and later obtained my masters in Art Psychotherapy in Sheffield. My practice as a therapist and passion for using art as a way of healing has helped develop my work as an artist. I mainly work with oil on paper or canvas, scratching into layers of paint and using quick brush strokes to create an expressive quality.
