Born in Edinburgh in 1963 she grew up in the North East of England. She trained at Edinburgh College of Art and graduated in 1985 with a BA Hons in Illustration and Design. She worked for many years as a professional illustrator before trying her hand at wood engraving. The medium suits her delight in fine detail and she has become a regular exhibitor with the Society of Wood Engravers.
The Bewick Society
The aim of the Bewick Society is to promote an interest in the life and work of Thomas Bewick and related subjects, especially with regard to wood-engraving. The Society publishes a journal called the Cherryburn Times, normally twice a year. This provides a forum for the activities of the Society and keeps members informed about the latest research into the life and work of Bewick and his apprentices. Members publish articles about their own special interests where relevant to the Society. The Society also arranges visits to special collections, some of which are not normally open to the general public. It encourages the development of facilities for conservation and display of Bewick related materials, including wood-engraving as practised by those following in Bewick’s footsteps.
Membership of the Society also gives free admission to the museum at Cherryburn, where Thomas Bewick was born, now in the care of the National Trust.
