Born in Cheshire (where my only memory is of squelching through mud in red Wellington boots), I moved at six from London to Paris.

After studying French and art history at Edinburgh University and the Ecole du Louvre, I wrote a doctoral thesis about isolation and integration in French medieval literature; taught at universities in St Andrew’s, Nice and the Sorbonne; and lived in a community for artists and writers in north Norfolk.

Now living in a tiny Victorian artisan’s cottage in London, I am a printmaker, ceramicist, photographer, community gardener and writer of haikus.

Slinking shadows, water ripples and city streets

My starting point is noticing a twist of shadow or a ripple of water; pressing the veins of a leaf into clay; or chasing a drift of memory.

Many of my prints are photopolymer etchings, but I am increasingly experimenting with ink transfer, drypoint, painting and collage – including even some colour.
