The Journey

Take a closer look at my journey so far.
I was born in 1968 the same year martin Luther king was assassinated and the number one song on my birthday was 'Young Girl by Union Gap'.
Before they married my dad was a coal miner and my mum worked at the Blackpool rock factory,
no one in their family had ever gone to college let alone university.

Baby Steps

I grew up in the 70’s with its horrendous fashion sense and survived the 80’s decline of education to find myself in the 90’s bare foot and pregnant. At the start of 2000 I was diagnosed with cancer, surviving I decided that i wanted to do more with my life than being a mother to four little girls..

The Long Road

It took me 10 years studying part time while my kids were at school to get the education and qualifications that were financially denied me in the 1980’s. It then took another 5 years for me to complete my Degree at Uclan, graduating in 2015 as a Bachelor of Science with Second Class Honours in Web Design and Development

Route 66

Since graduating I have worked as a freelance graphic designer, creating bespoke designs for clients looking for something less run of the mill. I am also working as an Associate Lecturer with Uclan and plan to go back to university in 2018 to study for my Masters in Graphic Design.

I am a creative thinker who likes to take the box and climb on top of it so I can see whats behind the wall.
