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!
