After completing a degree in sculpture at Chelsea and an MA in Fine Art, Architecture & Critical Theory from KIAD in 1994, she worked for many years as a photojournalist and art educator. Her current practice is mainly image and text based, encompassing traditional crafting techniques.

Moira Jarvis is an artist and teacher who completed an MA in painting at Wimbledon College of Art (UAL) and now works in one of the Cannizaro Park Studios. A curator for SLWA, her work explores personal and collective histories, with a strong interest in fragile ecologies. Current concerns are waterlands and the peat fens where she grew up, their importance in terms of habitat loss, carbon release and flood defence, intermingled with undercurrents of their liminal associations of life and death.
