About me

I was born in South West London in the year that Elvis joined the US Army.

I retired from my first career as a fashion model at the end of the Sixties (that's me top middle & bottom right).

At the end of the Seventies I read English at Brasenose College, Oxford.

In the mid Eighties I ran the film distribution library at the London Film Maker’s Co-operative.

My experimental animation has been screened internationally and supported occasionally by the Arts Council and the British Council.

In the Nineties I worked for five years with the internationally renowned charity Age Exchange. I ran 'Telling & Showing', a video production company making training, information and local history video programmes. I taught animation for Lambeth Community Education Service at the Strand Film Workshop and worked in the Media Department of South Thames further education college.
In the Noughties I ran Camden Council's groundbreaking Intergenerational development programme. I also worked with Out For Our Children campaigning for better resources and practice in schools representing same-sex parented families.

I currently work as a Development officer in Camden Council's Regeneration team. I also make things, grow vegetables and swim as often as possible.

I am working on several more illustrated books for children and lots of sculptures.
