She studied music at Oxford University and went on to postgraduate study in composition at The University of Manchester (MusM and PhD), studying with Robert Saxton and Philip Grange respectively.<br /><br />Many of her compositions take their inspiration from extra-musical sources including visual art and poetry , reflecting her activities as a painter and her interest in vocal techniques.
