I was born in north London in 1972, second child to a German mother and American Italian father, much to the irritation of my older sister, Emma.

I studied at Acland Burghley school in Tufnell Park where I was introduced to the joy of creativity by local art teaching legends Joe Kusner. MBE and Vassos Pappas.

They inspired me to pursue art as a career and I studied first at Chelsea College of Art, then on the south coast at Solent University.

I still enjoy the art studio, hands on approach of making work and try to do most of my thinking and making outside of the computer
