CV

For fifteen years I worked in the food manufacturing industry in New Product Development, creating new products and recipe dishes, right from concept through to product launch.

In 2004, I decided to change direction and broaden my creative skills by going to college, completing a BA Fine Art Degree with First Class Honours in 2009.

I would like to expand my art practice through exhibition, commission, residencies and collaboration.
