She studied at Norwich School of Art, 1972-3, and gained an honours degree from Bath Academy of Art, 1976, doing a year's advanced printmaking at Wimbledon School of Art, 1977.

Scenes of the Suffolk countryside and coastline dominate her work. Her Suffolk is a place of odd encounters an unkempt land and seascapes featuring working figures, dogs, boats, churchyards and allotments all portrayed in her distinctive style.

Mixed exhibitions included Crane Arts and Mercury Gallery in London and Edinburgh. She had two solo shows at Annexe Gallery, Wimbledon, 1979-80, and later ones including the Christopher Hull Gallery from 1987, and Chappel Galleries, Chappel, 1996 (with Hein Bonger).
