I completed a degree at St. Martin's School of Art, London in 1979 and have worked as a professional artist and designer in London and Gloucestershire, UK for 35 years.
My work explores impermanence, memory, time and crosses the boundaries of fine art, graphic and surface design. I work with a variety of materials: paint, ink, paper and textiles.
Current projects deal with contemporary political and social issues.
Textiles and quilt making are used as a means of recording and reacting to themes surrounding gender and race.
In 2011 I was diagnosed with severe m.e. which leaves me disabled and often bed bound: it also informs the working processes I use.
I work every day but sometimes I can only manage a few minutes at a time. The work process is therefore similar to a patchwork built up slowly over a period of time. The patchwork quilts provide a connection both to the world outside and memories from the past.
I currently work from my studio at home in Gloucestershire, UK.
My philosophy: I'm a great believer in the cross-fertilisation of art, design and craft. Drawing and conceptual thinking are essentials: they form the foundation of sound practise.
Accessibility matters: images and objects should explain and reveal, not conceal.
Good art and design enhances our lives.

I also have work on Facebook and Twitter.
