After graduating from Liverpool John Moores University with a degree in Fine Art in 1992, I worked in the Heritage Sector for eleven years as an assistant paper conservator. My work in paper conservation included re-mounting botanical specimens from an historic herbarium, conserving and re-housing an archive of large format photographic negatives, and repairing water damaged historical documents. In 2003, I returned to full time education, completing an MA course in Surface Pattern Design at the University of Central Lancashire in 2005.
Following the MA, I successfully applied for a two-year residency at the Department of Textiles & Paper at The University of Manchester. The residency, supported by Arts Council England, North West, enabled me to explore digital printing in more depth; this ultimately led to PhD research into colour management and colour accuracy issues for digital textile printing in Higher Education.
