Ar ôl cwblhau fy BA ac MA mewn Celfyddyd Gain ym Mhrifysgol Aberystwyth yn 1998, cychwynnais yrfa fel darlunydd, cyn dysgu mewn swyddi yn amrywio o artist preswyl i fod yn bennaeth adran.

The below presentation will only show part of her work, but you will find a link to her online exhibition in this text and in the presentation, if you would like to see all her images.
