About - Author
A Writer and Artist since the age of 15, I have had many poems, articles and stories published, and a few books of poetry and a Vegan cookbook. I have sold many artworks and still teach various art and craft workshops.
I was born in London but moved to Epping Forest in my 20's. I settled in Norfolk, first in the countryside then finally on the outskirts of Norwich city in the 90's. I had worked as a costumier for 20 years but always found outlets for my writing, becoming the East Anglian review contributor for Heckler magazine and as reporter for the local paper. In the 90's I had a book deal on the cards but fate took a hand and my life went in a different direction - as is often the case. I became a high school art & textiles teacher and have 4 and half degrees including an M.Ed.
I am now working on my Autobiography 'IT'S ALL ABOUT ME!' - 'and William the Conqueror's Grandfather' .
On researching my autobiography I found that my family of Gray / Grey was well documented going back hundreds of years and spanned many countries.
Knowing at the age of 15 that I would write this book when I retire, it is finally happening and due for release this year - 2022
I live in Norwich with my adopted fish. I write downstairs in my office and create art upstairs in my studio - the perfect combination!

I have been an mixed media and textile artist and designer for more than 40 years. At the age of 16 my crochet designs were being sold in Biba, London. I was one of the first punk designers and worked as a historical and theatrical costumier designing costumes for stage and screen for 20+ years from my premises in London and Norfolk. After getting my MEd I got into teaching and worked as an art & textile teacher in high school for 15 years and now teach those subjects to adults at Handmade Gifts & Gallery, and from my studio in Norwich. I was commissioned a few years ago to create a room box for the Small Stories joint exhibition with V&A at Norwich Castle Museum. Its called Under the Bed and is one of my favourite miniature dioramas!
I am so fortunate to have always worked in the creative arts as both an Author and Artist!
