Limited edition Artist's book, featuring illustrations of endangered birds who live at or visit the amazing Dungeness Nature Reserve.

I am a mixed media artist and printmaker whose work is primarily narrative.  I take ideas and express them in whatever form of art is appropriate;  painting, printmaking, drawing and sculpture.  My practice  often revolves around an exploration of the  challenges facing our wildlife; how they are adapting and surviving.  The techniques I use are as important as the idea. I print on organic materials and I work with paper, ink and stitchery to create 3D narratives.  I illustrate my short stories in limited edition artist’s books.  


I particularly love birds, both as portrait subjects and in allegorical situations, although as a conceptual artist I am often drawn to contemporary issues with socio-political dimensions.

I have been painting and drawing all my life, having won my first painting competition at the age of five. British born, I lived in New York for many years and studied painting and sculpture at the Art Students League.  I was a costume designer for off-Broadway theatre, dance and opera, and studied at The Studio and Forum of Stage Design in Greenwich Village.


In 2015 I co-founded South Coast Printmakers, a group of artist/printmakers in Kent and East Sussex.  Whilst we haven't exhibited collectively since the pandemic, we continue to take part in solo and group shows.   I am also a member of SoCo (South Coast Artists), Blue Monkey Network, the Hastings Arts Forum and Axis Web.  I am also the founder of a group called West Hill Artists and have opened my studio, together with several other artists in the art-centric Hastings neighbourhood as part of Coastal Currents.
