She trained at the Royal College of Art, Norwich School of Art & Design, the Kent Institute of Art & Design and the Imperial College, London. She was taught by artists and writers including Quentin Blake. At art school she was very inspired by artists including Kiki Smith and Paula Rego who imaginatively explore our relationship with nature through anthropomorphism.
